This world première recording of Paul von Klenau’s (1883-1946) recently rediscovered string quartets sheds new light on a highly interesting figure in early 20th century music.

The Danish-born composer left his native country to study and work in Germany and Austria, where he belonged to Alban Berg’s circle of friends.

Klenau’s music accordingly maintains a fascinating tension between Late Romanticism and Early Modernism; operating, as has been said of Berg, in “the twilight of tonality”.

Klenau: Symphony No. 9

Klenau: Symphony No. 9


Cornelia Ptassek (soprano), Susanne Resmark (alto), Michael Weinius (tenor) & Steffen Bruun (bass)

Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Michael Schønwandt

Paul von Klenau’s (1883-1946) grandiose Ninth Symphony in eight movements was composed in Copenhagen 1945 as his last major work; an extraordinary fusion of a Requiem with Latin text and a traditional symphony for orchestra, choir and four soloists. The manuscript then lay unknown for more than fifty years until it appeared in the 2001 discovery of a large collection of Klenau manuscripts in Vienna, and not until March 2014 – after a thorough editing by The Royal Library in Copenhagen – did it receive its first performance by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Schønwandt. This world premiere recording presents the full symphony; a magnificent opus of both tonal, atonal and even twelve-tone passages, very far removed from the style that predominated in the post-Nielsen Danish music of the 1940s.

“Bravo to these musicians for giving the piece every chance. Excellent playing, good choral singing and excellent contributions from the inimitable Susanne Resmark…and open-voiced tenor Michael Weinius” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

“full of terrific ideas throughout its long length in this premiere performance from Michael Schønwandt and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra with the Danish National Concert Choir and soloists” MusicWeb International, June 2016
