Curious, Compelling Braunfels Music for Piano and Orchestra (Video Review)

The Botton Line: If you’ve been following this Capriccio series of works by Walter Braunfels (1882-1954), a very talented, half-Jewish German composer whose music was banned by the Nazis and then ignored by the post-War avant-garde, you’ll certainly want to grab this release without delay. I mean, who can resist a peppy, piano concerto-like piece called “Witches’ Sabbath?” In fact, all three pieces on this disc are great fun, and a real discovery, as you can hear for yourself.
