Inaugural Release: Hessenberg

For its inaugural production, Cassandra Records presents the world-premiere recording of two important orchestral works of the 20th Century – works that at one time had been championed by an impressive roster of legendary maestri, such as Wilhelm Furtwängler, Franz Konwitschny, and Hans Rosbaud. Among numerous enthusiastic recommendations from critics, this recording has won record-of-the-year and record-of-the-month distinctions from America’s Fanfare and Germany’s Fono Forum magazines, respectively.

Kurt Hessenberg (1908-1994)

Concerto No. 1 for Orchestra, op. 18
