The Austrian composer Gottfried von Einem got to know the mechanism of this process himself, and it was ultimately thanks to some good fortune that he did not become one of the countless victims of the Nazi system of injustice.
He was one of those great composer personalities that played a major role in rebuilding the waste of the Austrian music scene after 1945, following the devasting cultural policies of Austrofascism, which were above all hostile to modern trends, and even more so those of the Nazis. Catchy thematic and melodic ideas, sharply accentuated rhythm, strong gestural and dance-like vigour and a pronounced feeling for differentiated timbre characterized von Einem’s highly personal musical diction, which can also be discerned in the opera Der Prozess. Einem-pupil, composer and conductor HK Gruber made an amazing, by audience and press enthusiastic celebtrated concertant performance during the Salzburg Festival 2018 which is documented on this recording.

‘María de Buenos Aires brought me inner peace, a partial serenity that has changed my way of approaching music. I reached the zenith of my musical life at the time. (Astor Piazzolla)
Piazzolla himself equated María to the tango and its historical ups and downs; and this is probably also the primary aid to understanding the reception of the contents of the piece. Next to that, there is also a musical diction that is entirely unique in the second half of the 20thcentury, indeed in the New Music scene as a whole. ‘I learnt something: to be patient, to be self-critical, to co-ordinate reflection with passion. Now I am told: ‘That is a different Piazzolla’, but that is not the case. I am the same man, but I have reached a synthesis’. (Astor Piazzolla)

As an internationally successful pianist and composer, Erwin Schulhoff was one of the most important Czech artists in the first half of the 20thcentury. For the last twentyfive years, his works are being rediscovered, and it goes to show that without him, a facet of the music of the 20th century would be missing. Not only did he abhor mainstream, but, like a sponge, he absorbed all musical currents of his time, and thus becoming a polystylist. For the first time now available in a 6 CD-Box  you'll find this enormous diversity of his musically work.
The early piano pieces and string quartets, the symphonies and finally his Jazz Improvisations shows how tricky he played with the different genres and trends of his time.

Gottfried von Einem was one of those great composer personalities that played a major role in rebuilding the waste of the Austrian music scene after 1945, following the devasting cultural policies of Austrofascism, which were above all hostile to modern trends, and even more so those of the Nazis. We owe Einem not least his rescue of the note material of many works by banned colleagues from destruction. Catchy thematic and melodic ideas, sharply accentuated rhythm, strong gestural and dance-like energy and a pronounced feeling for differentiated timbres determined Gottfried von Einem’s musical diction at an early age, features he retained throughout his life.
