Description: Schaeuble, who has appeared three or four times in these pages during the last decade with concertante works, writes music which is neo-classical in style, often severe and astringent, sometimes highly chromatic but not atonal, as in his 1946 sonata. And how about Furtwängler now beginning to join the ranks of such previously overlooked composers (but now reasonably well-represented) as Reger and Hindemith in the recorded catalogues? 2 CDs for the price of 1. Bettina Boller (violin), Walter Prossnitz (piano).
