Notes and Editorial Reviews

From 2005 to 2011 the Orchestra of the Dresden State Operetta under Ernst Theis recorded a body of works known as broadcast music. Almost all the German radio networks had commissioned synthesis Compositions from the best-known contemporary composers toward the goal of developing works suited to the technical resources of this new mass medium. The generic boundaries within contemporary music from the early days of radio were not fixed, as the names of the composers demonstrate: Kurt Weill, Paul Hindemith, Pavel Haas, Ernst Toch, and Franz Schreker, who went into music history as important innovators from of era. This broadcasted music is an interface between the popular music and all the other different trends within classical music during Read more The Weimar Republic. They display hardly known facets of a music created for radio audiences and deriving strength from the innovations of the period. These musical experiments written for live transmission over nothing more than a single microphone have no musical boundaries. Dance and jazz occur side by side with classical symphonic forms and the latest avant-garde innovations. This album is Vol. 2 of this series in which you will hear remarkable radio suites and overtures by Franz Schreker, Ernst Toch, Eduard Künnecke, Mischa Spoliansky, Max Butting, and Walter Braunfels. - cpo
