CD information

The second CD in PENTATONE’s dance music series lets you savour the famously vibrant compositions from the German-speaking countries. Connected by the power of music, inspired by fin de siècle, this CD glorifies the influential ballet/theatre/opera music from the interwar period.

These are vigorous performances of famous works and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is in top form. The music is familiar, yet there is always room for conductor Kazuki Yamada and the orchestra to approach it with verve, inviting listeners to remember what they enjoyed so much about it in the first place.
