About

Boris Blacher passed on hallmarks of his own music to many of his students, including Gottfried von Einem, Aribert Reimann and Isang Yun: a pronounced dance-like energy, lyrical melodies, orchestral sparkle, and subtlety of instrumentation. Blacher wrote a large number of ballets, and Poème clearly exemplifies how the idea of movement plays a central role even in his absolute music. Faced with the Nazi cultural restrictions of his time, it's surprising how Blacher continued to tread his own musical path in major works, a beneficiary perhaps of a lack of total unity among the authority's ranks of censors.
