Notes and Editorial Reviews


Here, accompanied by a lavish booklet with re-edited and expanded notes alongside complete texts and translations in German, French and English, are all of SWR’s Koechlin releases led by Heinz Holliger with the SWR Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart. It’s a class act, one not likely to be available for long–so get it while you can. All of the individual releases have been reviewed as they came out, and so I refer readers to those reviews for a more detailed description of the music on each disc. Koechlin was one of the major figures in 20th century music, an eclectic whose musical style included everything from medieval modes to baroque counterpoint to impressionism, neoclassicism and atonality.
Read more What makes him unique is that you can frequently find some or all of these qualities in the same work. He was also a master orchestrator. This music, by turns subtle and brilliant, is amazing.
