Notes & Reviews:
These world premiere recordings of music by composer Ferdinand Bruckmann (b. 1930) represent a considerable portion of his output. A student of Frank Martin, later himself a professor of composition and piano, Bruckmann's music stands out for its harmonic-melodic diversity, comical notions and funny surprises. Renowned interpreters including Kayako Bruckmann (the composer's daughter, Rene Berman, Heinz Walter Florin and Michael van Krücker present with their interpretations a characteristic and very convincing musical portrait.
