The music of the fine Swiss-born composer and conductor Volkmar Andreae has recently come to the attention of a wide international public, where it has been revealed as being of the highest musical quality. It appears that Andreae's career as a composer was completely overshadowed by his career as a conductor, but this outstanding new CD, the second to feature his chamber music from Guild (GMCD 7307 - Piano Trios), contains his two string quartets and a delightful late Divertimento for flute and string trio. The performances are quite superb - as is the music, ranging in influences from Richard Strauss to the later French Impressionists - and the recording is one of the best we have issued in recent years. A most significant issue for Swiss music.
