Description: These works date from 1945 (Geiser's tone-poemish depiction of the war and its recent conclusion) to 1970 (Widmer's representation of the dense, starlike objects of its title - an explosion surrounded by quiet outer sections symbolizing the twinkling sky) are all tonal. Geiser and Sutermeister are quite late-Romantic although the latter adds pounding piano clusters for ominous effect in his 1950 Marche while Mieg's 1952 piece partakes of Honeggerian neo-classicism and Tamás' work of 1958, written only two years after he fled his home country, shows the influences of Bartók and Kodály. Argovia Philharmonic; Douglas Bostock.
