Walter Braunfels, who died in 1954, was one of the great twentieth-century German composers who were temporarily eclipsed by the Nazi era and the 1950s avant-garde.
This second volume in Dutton Epoch’s survey of Braunfels’ memorable orchestral music spans from his luxuriant early Symphonic Variations on a French Children’s Song to the utterly delightful orchestral suite The Glass Mountain (Der Gläserne Berg) and the powerfully satisfying Sinfonia Brevis.
