This album is unheard, for, as far as we know, none of this music has ever been issued before on a CD or gramophone recording. But this recording is also unheard-of, since every piece conveys the force of artistic necessity, of an uncompromising, selfless idealism, on which the Nazis laid a curse, but which went to make the music of the Interwar period so rich and engrossing. In short, the present album provides a supplement to the incomplete history of the music of this period, and brings unjustly forgotten composers to life once again.

Press reviews

Musica Reanimata

(…) Werner Herbers hat einmal mehr seine Überzeugung belegt, dass ohne die Musikgeschichte der verfemten Komponisten die Musikgeschichte des 20.Jahrhunderts unvollständig ist, dass ihr kostbare Kleinodien fehlen würden. Und diese CD zeigt, dass er zwischen den Mainstreams der Schönberg-und-Hindemith Schule eine Fülle ganz anders gearteter Strömungen gab, die neue Facetten ins Bild der Jahrhunderts bringen.

Het Parool

(…) Het is goed en rechtvaardig dat het Ebony Quartet en zijn artistiek inspirator Werner Herbers de muziek van Kahn nieuw leven geeft. (…)

Ludwig Van (Toronto)

Much of the music on this album is essential listening. You won’t understand music of the last century without it.

Artsfuse

(…) a ‘must-hear’ album of music from between the world wars (…)Throughout, the Ebony’s play these pieces with tremendous vigor and attention to detail. You won’t find – and couldn’t ask for – a better-played or finer-sounding set of belated-debut recordings of any of them.

Luister (Luister 10)

Werner Herbers and his musicians did it again. (…) All of it is really good music, without a doubt. Not only Erich Itor Kahn’s fragment of a string quartet but also the Second String Quartet by Jokl, or the Indiskretionen by Gruenberg, which showcase a slightly lighter tone. (…) Unheard is full of music which thankfully will no longer be unheard.
