Description: Produced by a new company dedicated to composers suppressed by the Nazis, this recital contains two suites composed by Gál while he was in a British concentration camp for "enemy aliens" on the Isle of Man (1940-42). The Huyton Suite and the two-violin sonata are quite conservative, devoted to melody and relative ease of performance, with their slightly unusual instrumentation determined by the instruments available to fellow camp-members. The early Sketches are also very conservative and romantic while the late (1974) Intermezzi are still devoted to the comfort of the performers although a slightly more modern harmony prevails. Ulrike Anton (flute), Russell Ryan (piano), Cornelia Löscher, Wolfhart Schuster (violins).
