The Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra has had a great deal of experience in the field of contemporary music, from its exceptional work with the early works of Schönberg by its first principal conductor, Hans Rosbaud, to »cresc…«, the new Biennale for Modern Music Frankfurt Rhein Main organised together with the Ensemble Modern. This CD presents six works realised by the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra during recent years with its latest principal conductor, Paavo Järvi, including two world premieres of compositions which were also commissioned by the Frankfurt Radio.

The Guardian

23rd January 2014


“The best, most lingering of them is the third of Mauricio Kagel's orchestral Etudes, a pithy demonstration of how to transform witty charm into snarling menace in a few moments, though neither Beat Furrer's Chiaroscuro or Peter Ruzicka's Clouds outstays its welcome, either.”

The Independent

22nd March 2014


“it’s Widmann’s title track that stands out: inspired by Mozart’s interest in the glass harmonica, it features a blend of strings, accordion and tuned percussion emulating that instrument’s long, keening tones, everything shaped “lightly and vitreously... like a musical suspension of gravity”, as Widmann describes it.”
