Paul Dessau Edition

A tribute to one of the most iconic composers of post war East Germany, Paul Dessau’s style may be described as “Avant Garde for the People”. His own creative ideas often clashed with the aestetics of the communistic regime, but his “love / hate” relationship with the communist cause resulted in an oeuvre in which the political message is embedded in a vibrant, innovative, confronting and appealing musical language, based on neo-tonality and expressionistic influences.
Dessau wrote an enormous amount of music, and this set presents his most important and representative works: orchestral music, piano music, and a wealth of dramatic works: songs and operas.
Authoritative performances by East German forces, musicians living and working in the same situation as Dessau, friends, understanding each other without speaking: Leipzig Gewandhausorchester, Staatskapelle Dresden, Staatskapelle Berlin, conductors Otmar Suitner, Herbert Kegel and ...Paul Dessau himself.
Newly written liner notes in the booklet, sung texts on the Brilliant Classics website.
A most welcome edition of historic importance!
