Produktbeskrivelse

 

When Max von Schillings died in Berlin on 24 July 1933, a very German
musician’s life reached its end. Wilhelm Furtwängler, writing in memory of
his teacher, who »next to Strauss and Pfitzner« was regarded »as Wagner’s
most significant successor and continuator,« accurately described his role
when he stated »that he was one of the very few prominent composers of that
epoch, also as a German musician conscious of culture and tradition.« This
statement perfectly captures the place in music history fated for
Schillings, with its strengths and weaknesses. Today the former fame of
this late Romanticist born in Düren in 1868 has faded and his music is
almost entirely forgotten, and since the 1930s hardly anything has been
published about him. Therefore, we are particularly happy once again to
rescue his music from oblivion with the present CD – in particular with the
Hexenlied (Witch’s Song) op. 15 to a ballad by Ernst von Wildenbruch;
premiered in 1902 and presented as an orchestral version in Basel in 1903,
this work soon enjoyed great popularity. The Symphonic Prologue to
Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex op. 11, A Dialogue for Violin, Cello, and Small
Orchestra op. 8, and the Dance of the Flowers also offer rewarding
opportunities for occupation with the music of Max von Schillings.
