Notes and Editorial Reviews

The 150th anniversary of Charles Koechlin’s birth in November 2017 is marked by the reissue of all the Koechlin recordings made by the Sudwestrundfunk. They are compiled in two sets of seven albums each: set 1- vocal and orchestral music; set 2- piano and chamber music, which is featured here. This comprehensive Koechlin project began in 2001 as a collaboration between the Radio Symphony Orchestra of SWR Stuttgart, conductor Heinz Holliger, and Otfrid Nies of the Charles Koechlin Archive in Kassel. This release is unique in several respects: first, there is no comparable collection of this composer’s chamber music; second, most of the performers were members of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra who became familiar with Koechlin’s works Read more over many years; third, this familiarity produced highly relaxed and knowledgeable performances, which is naturally a huge advantage.
