GMCD 7400 Volkmar Andreae

This is the latest volume in Guild's series of recordings of the music of the great Swiss composer and conductor Volkmar Andreae (1879-1962), and the third of his orchestral music. A distinguished aspect of these orchestral recordings is that they are all conducted by the composer's grandson, the much-admired Marc Andreae, which gives the performances a genuine sense of authority. These are all new recordings, made in England by the greatly distinguished Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. To judge by the reaction to our earlier issues of Andreae's music, we are confident this new release will be widely welcomed, not least for the oboe playing of John Anderson in the Concerto, and the singing of Benjamin Hulett in the wonderful Li-Tei-Pe songs.
