Absolutely one of my top discs of 2007, this is a complete treasure from start to finish. It's further validation that Eric Zeisl was one of the finest and most interesting of composers of the 20th century. Do not be surprised if his glorious Piano Concerto in C major become an instant favorite; it pulls the listener in with it's aural magic from the first note. "Pierrot in der Flasche" is a Suite taken from Zeisl's ballet of the same name (Pierrot in the Flask) and is also a true delight from start to finish. It's an extremely exciting, fun and colorful score, with influences and inspiration seemingly coming from everywhere; stylistically it's a musical cornucopia that manages to jump and shift from one idea to another, yet cohesively so. Every moment of this disc holds my complete interest, and this release is one to keep nearby imo as opposed to cataloging it deep within one's library.
Information will be added (although you are really all set as I'm including the booklet notes) when I have the time, as I have been mentioning in prior offerings..
Enjoy this gem!!
