Notes & Reviews:
This album is the fourth of ten in the Edition Enjott Schneider series, released by Wergo. In the three works included on this CD, emotional processes have been pushed to the foreground - music as expression. The violin concerto Earth's Eyes refers to a remark of the philosopher Henry David Thoreau while the double concerto Dr.Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is based on the most famous literary version of the doppelganger motif and the second symphony Sisyphos was inspired by the mythological figure of Sisyphus, who was condemned to eternal labor because of his cunning and trickery.
