Once more we are about to make the acquaintance of a composer whose destiny was obscured by the giants of his time. Even today, the shadows of Brahms, Bruckner, later followed by those of Strauss and Wagner, determine what is first- and second-class music. Little by little, the German post-romantic period is rediscovered, thanks to enteprising record producres and idealistic conductors.

Heinrich Schulz-Beuthen was born in Beuthen in 1838. In 1862 he became a pupil of Ignaz Moscheles and Carl Reinecke in Leipzig and thereby a fellow student of both Grieg and Svendsen. Schulz-Beuthen managed to complete eight symphonies and left two unfinished. Other orchestral works include symphonic poems, incidental music, melodrama, several overtures, suites and miniatures. A lot of chamber music with piano and other ensembles. Three operas, ten oratories and a requiem.
