Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This CD brings together compositions from slightly more than a hundred years, featuring treatments of the "railroad" theme - now idyllic or impressionistic, now realistic or even smacking of social criticism, but in classical form. The feeling of intoxication induced by sheer speed, the implacability of mechanical forces, the menace inherent in acceleration, the clatter of the wheels, the whistling and hooting of the valves, but also the stillness following a thunderous journey - all these are found with varying degrees of accentuation in the colorful and exciting orchestral works featured on this disc. A highly enjoyable, thematic program, presented with great enthusiasm by the Kaiserslautern ensemble.
