Description: Grunelius’ dark and threatening 12-minute work was inspired both by the darkly looming North Sea on the German coastline in late autumn and by Baudelaire’s dread-filled poem which gives the piece its title (the poem and English translation are helpfully included). Not advertised as a first recording but unavailable on disc is the 1933 Concertino by Hartmann, a 14-minute work of jazzy associations which also refers to the opening melody of Stravinsky’s Sacre in its second movement. The manuscript of this was discovered only in 2000; Hartmann reused some of its material in his fourth symphony. Wim Van Hasselt (trumpet, flugelhorn).
