Description: Schoenberg thought Achron "one of the most underestimated of modern composers". Needless to say, he still is. Shaham and Erez' 1997 Biddulph recording was rare in giving the composer an entire disc. Now they offer a full new disc and Hyperion tacks on the Biddulph for free. Far more than a "Hebrew composer", Achron inhabits a harmonically sophisticated world and can be seen as a true 20th century "original" with Bartók and Enescu as obvious reference points. 2 CDs for the price of 1. Hagai Shaham (violin), Arnon Erez (piano).
