All the works on this CD date from Ernst Tochs inter-war years, when he completely stripped his music of romanticism by disregarding late Romantic harmonic conventions and restrictions. 'What has always fascinated and impressed me from the beginning particularly in the works after 1918 is their reduction to the most important essentials. Every noteconveys the impression of being absolutely necessary, and not one is superfluous or replaceable. Ernst Tochs music displays conviction, and his story moves me in such a special way that I feel a great need to make his music accessible again to a broader public and to make my own contribution to the re-introduction of the most forgotten composer of the 20th century, as Toch often referred to himself in the final years of his life' Anna Magdalena Kokits.
