After the Telefunken recordings of Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt (Tah 698-700), this is another welcome reissue: several rarities from the famous Capitol label which seem to have disappeared completely. Music lovers have long searched for these rare performances, at last made available. In these recordings we can admire the wonderful playing of the famous Hamburg strings, led by Erich Röhn and Arthur Troester, but also the beauty of the sound of Gerhard Otto’s flute and above all the incredible clarinet playing of Rudolf Irmisch (Waldweben).
