Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hermann Haller was one of the most important figures in Swiss musical life. He was president of the Swiss Musician's Union and of the performing rights society SUISA. His oeuvre is not large, but includes works in almost all genres except opera. His Double Concerto was written in 1961 and was premiered in March 1962. Vladimir Vogel was born in Moscow to a German father and a Russian mother. After World War I he moved to Berlin where he studied with, among others, Busoni. When the Nazis took over, he moved to Switzerland. His Concertino for Flute and String Quartet was written in 1979. The version recorded here with string orchestra was authorized by the composer. Robert Blum was born in Zurich and he also studied with Busoni where his Read more classmates were Vladimir Vogel and Kurt Weill. He returned to Switzerland where he taught at the Zurich Music Academy. He wrote his Concertino for Clarinet and String Orchestra in 1974. Hans Schaeuble was born in Switzerland and studied at the Leipzig Conservatory from 1927 to 1931. He then moved to Berlin where he had considerable success as a composer. His Symphonic Music for Large Orchestra, Op. 22 was premiered in 1939 by the Berlin Philharmonic under Carl Schuricht. Sadly, he was not able to continue his success after the Second World War. He composed less and less, and occupied himself at the last only with repeated reworkings of his earlier works. His Concertino for Flute and String Orchestra was written in 1959 and was given its first performance in 1966. Read less
