Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The third and concluding 2-CD set of works by one of the last surviving members of the generation of composers the Nazis sought to extinguish, Walter Arlen, presents short songs for piano solo as well as songs with soprano, describing different touchstones and experiences of his life. Atrocities like the Kristallnacht 1938 in Vienna find their musical expression in his works, as well as journeys to distant, exotic places and experiences with people; and time and again art and music are the ingredients to Walter Arlens life after his eviction by the Nazis. Polish-Canadian pianist Daniel Wnukowski and Texan-born Rebecca Nelsen interpret songs of utmost inner emotions and reflections on human history and life.
