New release with world premiere recording of works by Hans Schaeuble

On 10 May 2020, a new recording of works by Swiss composer Hans Schaeuble was released on the Solo Musica label Munich. Bremerhaven's musical director Marc Niemann, who has caused an international sensation with his excavations of rarely performed repertoire, made this recording last October with the renowned Sinfonietta Riga, which performs worldwide with leading conductors and soloists and whose numerous recordings have received many awards - including the coveted Grammy.

The Serenade for String Orchestra op. 42 from 1956 can not only be found on this recording as a world premiere recording, but Marc Niemann and the Riga musicians probably premiered this work, as no performance has survived to date. The recording also presents the rather sombre Piano Concerto op. 50 (composed in 1967) with pianist Oliver Triendl, whose discography comprises almost 150 recordings, and the cheerful and light-footed Concertino for oboe and string orchestra op. 44 from 1959, for which the internationally renowned oboist Kai Frömbgen was engaged as the soloist.

"Hans Schaeuble's music combines lyrical, melodious passages with highly virtuosic Stravinsky-style motor skills in a very individual way, fanning out a very broad spectrum of expression. It is not only a pity that music of such atmospheric density and such a unique tonal language could be completely forgotten, it is incomprehensible!" (Marc Niemann)
