Notes & Reviews:

Blacher's celebrated 'Orchestral Variations on a Theme by Paganini' joins three 1950s variable meter works, all incorporating a deft integration of his controlled variation of beats per measure and his brilliant modern jazz-influenced ensemble writing. Much like a great modern architect, Blacher adapted Hindemith's sense of pulse, responded to Schoenberg's radical technical organization, and possessed a Stravinsky-like open to mid-century jazz.
