Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a stunning discovery by a composer I’d heard very little from, before. A stray Harmonia Mundi disc of Joseph Marx-student Eric Zeisl’s chamber music that I picked up in the Cut-Out section of Tower Records more than five years ago had made my ears perk, but not permanently. Now CPO has brought us the 1951 Piano Concerto coupled with the 1929 ballet suite “Pierrot in the Bottle”. I will review this in more detail in the new year – but consider this very fine 20th century piano concerto even now… assuming you like Ravel’s concerto and the music of Korngold or Mahler. Zeisl is one of those Jewish-Austrian/German emigrant composers who found their way to America… but did not find their career continue or take off as much as the Read more surviving music suggests it should have. Zeisl came late to composing for movies and did not achieve fame or wealth in that field (after films like “Lassie Come Home”, “The Invisible Man’s Revenge”, and “Money, Women, and Guns” it’s not surprising) – and before building a third career (after Vienna and New York) in L.A., a heart attack robbed him from the music scene at age 53. This concerto – and Mr. Wallisch’s interpretation – is good enough that it might make for a humble Zeisl renaissance. -- Jens F. Laurson Read less
