Notes & Reviews:

This is the perfect package for those with a really serious interest in one of Switzerland's most important 20th century composers. Bernard Reichel's origins are in Silesia and Provence. However, his family settled in the French-speaking part of Switzerland in the latter part of the 19th century. Reichel's style reflects folk music, hymns, and medieval modalities. Although Reichel's activities were centered most in his native country (he didn't achieve the international fame of fellow countrymen Honegger, Bloch, or Martin), his music did get around. The 'Symphony No. 2' was, after all, commissioned and recorded by the Louisville Orchestra in the 1950's and several of his works appeared on Decca/London in a series of Swiss music. This remarkable boxed set, produced from Swiss Radio Archives by the Association Bernard Reichel, reveals a conservative composer who really had something to say.
