Description: Originally offered in October 1998 (10A077). Genzmer is a composer who has rejected the avant-garde in his compositions, taking his cue from Hindemith, with whom he studied. Like Hindemith he has demonstrated some interest in electronic music - but you would never know it from these scores, all of which treat a conventional orchestra in a fairly traditional manner. The music is largely tonal, incisively rhythmic in fast movements, expressively contemplative in slow ones, and contains nothing that would have given Bartók or Prokofiev pause for thought. Good, solid 20th-century fare. Begoña Uriarte & Karl-Hermann Mrongovius (pianos), Eduard Brunner (clarinet), Bamberg Symphony; Hans Stadlmair.
