The Schumann Quartet dedicates its latest studio production "1923" to that year in which new musical paths were sought, found or questioned and at the same time the birth of radio heralded a new age for composers and the dissemination of their works. The CD programme brings together selected quartet music by Paul Hindemith, Alban Berg, Erwin Schulhoff and Leoš Janįček.

In 1923 the first radio broadcast in Germany was aired. To mark the occasion, the Schumann Quartet has recorded a new album.

The repertoire includes a variety of styles.

All pieces were written around 1923 and have a direct connection to the beginning of radio broadcasting.
