‘The audience might remember that – as a descendant of writing tonal music – I am still alive and continue composing.’ – Walter Braunfels, 1946

Walter Braunfels’ music died twice: first, when the Nazis declared his music ‘degenerate art’; and again when postwar Germany largely rejected tonal music, with arbiters of taste declaring any form of romantic music (almost the whole pre-war aesthetic) to be tainted. This ninth volume in Capriccio’s Braunfels Edition also shows us an open-minded composer who experimented with jazz elements in his Divertimento for radio-orchestra in 1929. The programme also includes the prelude to his comic opera Don Gil of the Green Breeches, Ariel’s Song and the Serenade in E flat major.
