About

Walter Braunfels' music fell out of favour twice: first, when the Nazis declared his music 'degenerate art'; and again when post-war Germany declared it had little use for the various schools of tonal music and considered any form of romantic music (almost the whole pre-war aesthetic) to be tainted. Post-war European music faced a fundamental shift in direction.

This is Vol.6 of Capriccioís Braunfels Edition, devoted to reviving the composer's rich legacy and showcasing the colourful range of his music. The programme features works for piano and orchestra from three different periods of his life: his first complete orchestral work, Witches' Sabbath, Op.8 (1906), the Concert Piece, Op.64 (1946) and one of his last compositions, the Hebridean Dances, Op.70 (1950/51).
