Paul Hindemith belongs to the most original and interesting composers of the 20th century. Once described by the Boston Globe as a "20th-century Brahms", Hindemith wrote music that is Modernist in its rhythmic audacity and colourful orchestration, but simultaneously inspired by Classical forms and styles.

John Eliot Gardiner is one of the leading conductors in the active authentic performances movement in England, performing Baroque music but also extending his range into later repertoire. He first conducted at the age of 15, and after finishing school he studied at King's College, Cambridge. While still an undergraduate, he conducted the combined Oxford and Cambridge Singers on a 1964 tour of the Middle East and founded the Monteverdi Choir, which has consistently performed on his recordings since.

In the "Zorba" ballet suite, Mikis Theodorakis uses almost exclusively well-known popular songs which he composed mainly in the 1960s. Some of them have been incorporated in the work as melodies, some of them as vocal pieces. It took twenty years before the composer became his normal self again; he first had to experience the disillusionment at the end of the 1970s concerning the social progress in Greece in order to be finally able to pick up the musical material, continue the compositional impetus of the 1950s and develop an appreciation for the genre of the opera in the mid-eighties which suits his composer's mentality both as a melodist and as a symphonic composer very well.

The jazz trumpeter and ECHO award winner Frederik Köster and his band The Transformation at his concert together with the philharmonic orchesterhagen in the season 2016 | 2017 for a "musical moment of glory" (Westfalenpost). Here he first performed his Homeward Bound Suite, a musical declaration of love to his Sauerland home and a borderline between jazz band sound and classical orchestra. The experiment was so extraordinarily successful that the renowned jazz label Traumton Records recorded one of the three concerts. The release of the CD will now be celebrated in the context of this special concert. There is also George Gershwin's An American in Paris in an exciting reinterpretation by jazz band and orchestra. The line has Steffen Müller-Gabriel.

A small sensation awaits us in the GENUIN debut release of Estonian pianist Kärt Rubel: the works of the great Baroque composers Johann Jakob Froberger and Johann Joseph Fux performed on a modern piano. And when we hear the limpid and spirited playing of the young artist, at the start of a burgeoning international career, we wonder how the hidden treasure of Frobergers music could have escaped us until now, and how Fux could have been given so little attention! Rubel places the two composers alongside Johann Sebastian Bach, opening a fascinating window onto a previous era, when both were at least as famous as the Cantor of St. Thomas.

"The Americans expect great things of me,’ Dvorák wrote in November 1892 to his friend Josef Hlávka, ‘and the main thing, so they say, is to show them the way to the promised land and kingdom of a new and independent art, in short, to create a national music."

It was in these terms that Ferruccio Busoni greeted the publication in 1908 of the 14 Bagatelles, in which Béla Bartók conveyed the violent aesthetic impact of his discovery of authentic Hungarian peasant music. Over the next 20 years, up to the magisterial Sonata of 1926, he indefatigably refined an innovative pianistic language: pungent, dissonant, percussive, with multiple new playing techniques, that was to influence the entire 20th century. A master of every style, from Haydn to Boulez by way of Chopin and Chabrier, Alain Planès stands revealed here as a Bartókian of the front rank.
