About

Markus Poschner gained European renown in 2004, when he won the German Conducting prize, and became the principal conductor of the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana at the beginning of the current season. This CD is the first recording he has made with the orchestra.

Along with the Suite op.60 with the incidental music to Der Bürger als Edelmann of 1917, Poschner conducts the Duet Concertino for clarinet, bassoon and strings penned by Strauss much later, in 1947, for the Lugano Orchestra and also premiered by him there.

The historical bonus tracks include selections (Four Songs for Soprano and Orchestra by Strauss) from precisely this concert conducted by the composer on 11 June 1947 (his birthday!) as well as the concert address delivered by Bernhard Paumgartner on the same occasion.
