Notes and Editorial Reviews

As a young child in Silesia, Robert Radecke’s musical talent was recognized and cultivated. His career bloomed in Berlin where he became the Royal Court Opera music director in 1863, and the Royal Chapel Master in 1871. From 1892 until he was seventy-seven years old, Radecke held the post of director of Berlin’s Royal Institute of Church Music. Radecke was personally acquainted with master conductors such as Wagner, Liszt, Schumann, and Strauss. His catalogue includes over 100 songs, chamber music, piano works, symphonies, overtures, sacred hymns, choral works, and organ works. This new release features Radecke’s symphonic pieces. The project was funded by crowd-funding efforts organized in Biel, as well as a donation from the composer’s Read more great-grandson, Christian Radecke. Read less
