About

The case of the composer Hans Winterberg (1901–91) is a strange one – he may be the only composer to be banned by the Nazis and then disappear again fifty years later. He survived the Terezín concentration camp, where he had been interned as a Czech Jew, and after the War he settled in Munich as a German citizen, with his music enjoying a number of broadcasts.

But after his death, his estate disappeared into the vaults of the Sudeten German Music Institute, where it was placed under embargo, emerging only in 2015 through the efforts of his grandson. This first album of his music reveals an unusual and individual voice, an idiosyncratic blend of Stravinsky, Janáček and Hindemith, with touches of Poulenc, often expressed with brittle humour and rhythmic verve.

The Arizona Wind Quintet is the faculty ensemble-in-residence at the University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music in Tucson. Formed in 1977, the AWQ has cultivated a tradition of excellence in both performance and teaching. The other instrumentalists on this recording are distinguished musicians active in the Tucson area, several of them teaching at the Fred Fox School of Music, although they appear in concert and at festivals all over North America.

Arizona Wind Quintet:
- Brian Luce (flute)
- Sara Fraker (oboe)
- Jackie Glazier (clarinet)
- Daniel Katzen (horn)
- William Dietz (bassoon)
