Description: Making a matching pair with Brilliant Classics' reissue of the East German-sourced Paul Dessau box (04P065) of five months ago, this set brings us 684 minutes of the other major 20th century "lefty" German composer who ended up domiciled in East Germany. A great thumbnail sketch of him by the late Malcolm MacDonald is a model for how to cram massive amounts of useful information into less than three pages of text. 10 CDs. Texts and longer notes available on-line.
