Notes & Reviews:

“Die Narbe / The Scar” is a project by Berlin-based photographer Martin U. K. Lengemann. On the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the war, Lengemann told the newspaper ”Welt am Sonntag“ his own personal history of the First World War from the perspective of his great-grandfather and events on Western Front. His wish is reconciliation instead of division. For decades, he has been committed to promoting understanding between Germans and Britons. For many years, he has researched the history, accounts and music of the Great War. Lengemann, whose other great passion is classical music, found three composers who stand out in their generation. Their works, some of which appear on CD for the fi rst time, round out the project.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Berlin-based photographer Martin Lengemann has a keen personal interest in the horrors of the First World War and has been committed for decades to promoting reconciliation and understanding between Germans and Britons through his project "Die Narbe/The Scar". His great love of classical music led him to identify three composers who "stand out in their generation" and who perished in the war: Rudi Stephan, George Butterworth, and Cecil Coles, who belong to what this album calls the "Lost Generation", the title of the release.
