Notes and Editorial Reviews

This year celebrates Hermann Scherchen's 120th anniversary, and for that occasion we are releasing this album that includes only previously unissued recordings (1945 to 1965). Scherchen (1891-1966) is an atypical case and certainly a unique case in the history of conducting because of his diversified and varied activities: in the first place, he was a conductor, of course, but also a composer, a pedagogue, a writer (he wrote three books the first of which, Das Lehrbuch des Dirigierens was published in 1929 and is still a handbook of conducting used today), an editor (Ars Viva), a philosopher, a consultant in acoustics, and a pioneer of the radio.
