Guild is proud to announce the release of this very significant set of first recordings of major orchestral works by the prolific Caspar Diethelm (1926-1997), widely recognised as one of the finest Swiss composers to come to the forefront of European music since Frank Martin. Sumptuously recorded in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra under the outstanding Swiss conductor Rainer Held, the set chronicles Diethelm's major contribution to symphonic and other orchestral forms in the second half of the 20th-century. A remarkably fine release of high musical importance, with programme notes by the composer’s daughter, Esther Diethelm.
