Like Korngold, Toch, Schoenberg, Zeisl and Zemlinsky, Richard Stöhr (1874–1967) was another Austrian composer driven into American exile by the Nazis. His generous output of music includes seven symphonies, muchchamber music, songs, and choral and piano pieces. It is being rediscovered at last in a series of Toccata Classics recordings; this is the third. Fanfare described Volume 2 as ‘simply gorgeous music’.

The first two of his fifteen violin sonatas offer a seamless outpouring of fin de siècle Viennese lyricism, with one good tune following another, in a style somewhere between Brahms and Korngold.

Ulrike-Anima Mathé’s international awards include first prizes at the European Violin Competition in Vienna in 1985 and at the Young Concert Artists Audition in New York in 1988. In 1999 she was appointed violin professor at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold.

The American pianist Scott Faigen enjoys a distinguished career as concert pianist, composer and conductor. He has served on the faculties of the National Academy of Music, the North Carolina School of the Arts, and the Stuttgart Music Conservatoire. Since 1989 has been on the faculty of the Mannheim Conservatoire.
