Notes & Reviews:

During his final years, Ernst Toch spoke wistfully of himself as "the most forgotten composer in the world". For this reason cpo is happy to present their complete edition of his symphonies on three CDs - now available at a special reduced price in a boxed set. Ernst Toch was born in Vienna in 1887 as the son of a Jewish merchant of modest means and died in Los Angeles in 1964, and the places and times of his biography speak volumes. With technical mastery and the highest artistic candor, he added a musical color all of his own to the stylistic pluralism of the early twentieth century - and now it has finally been heard! In America he was praised for his mastery of contrapuntal design, wealth of color, and seemingly boundless powers of imagination.
