Notes & Reviews:

Braunfels regarded himself as a late-romantic, traditional composer in succession to Berlioz, Wagner and Bruckner. During the period of the Third Reich, he was dismissed from his positions as a "half Jew" and his works were banned from performance. After the Second World War, representatives of the musical avant-garde found Braun-fels's style no longer contemporary, which is why he gradually became forgotten. His entire oeuvre has been enjoying a wonderful Renaissance since the 1990s, how-ever, and is now being enthusiastically rediscovered by the international musical world.
