Produktbeskrivelse

Paul Graener was a »latest romanticist« with a strong inclination for
French impressionism – which as a composer in the Germany of the first half
of the twentieth century makes him a unique case. This month cpo is
presenting three of his concertos on our fourth Graener CD. Once again it
is shown that this music more than deserves to be rediscovered. Hardly any
other companion of Paul Graener’s so intensely supported his oeuvre as did
the cellist Paul Grümmer, the dedicatee of this composer’s Cello Concerto
and the soloist at its premiere in 1927. The critic Adolf Diesterweg wrote
in a review: »Graener’s new Cello Concerto contains naturally invented,
succinctly formed music enabling the cellist, thanks to the transparent
orchestral part, to sound his instrument effectively. In my view the most
beautiful movement is the highly cantabile and atmospheric Adagio. The
Violin Concerto has harmonically original, fascinating sound elements
showing us Graener at an absolute creative summit. The time of composition
of Graener’s last finished composition, his Flute Concerto, coincides with
the increasing bombardment and destruction of Berlin. Here it is above all
the last movement that stands out and attracts our attention – and does so
not so much because of its neoclassical guise, something already to be
encountered in Graener’s works of the 1930s, but rather on account of his
choice of the life-affirming folk song, which displays a cheerful mood that
can be harmonized neither with the difficult circumstances of Graener’s
life nor with the wartime events taking place at that time.«
