Notes & Reviews:

Audite presents the second duo production with Anne-Catherine Heinzmann and Thomas Hoppe. It contains sonatinas and suites by five twentieth-century composers. In their respective aesthetics, each composer shares the ability to use forms and models of music history as inspiration for his own modern musical language. Existentially, they shared a common fate: all were persecuted by the National Socialists. Some were murdered in concentration camps and others fled to continue their lives in exile. Leo Smit, Alexandre Tansman and Erwin Schulhoff were inspired by French music, including Claude Debussy's sense for the magic of sound and melodic elaboration and the openness towards jazz shown by the Parisian musical scene. For Guenter Raphael, classical clarity and romantic differentiation were decisive ideals; in his late Intermezzi, Hans Gal looked back at his artistic origins in the circle surrounding Johannes Brahms. These five intensive, virtuoso works shed light on facets of an age to which attention is otherwise but rarely paid.
