Description: All four composers here are connected both by their refusal to go the Schoenberg dodecaphonic route and the first three by a loose stylistic link with Hindemith. Everything is bright, often sparky, wittily instrumented and, if you don’t know the Blacher, it’s pure delight, especially coming from 1963 when atonality otherwise pretty much ruled. Hindemith Quintet, Munich Chamber Orchestra; Alexander Liebreich.
