"The selections of chamber music on this CD by Hans Werner Henze (b.1926) tend toward his lyrical side, and with an emphasis on compositions derived from his theater pieces. The CD's repertoire especially suits the Naples-based Ensemble Dissonanzen, featuring the talents of its guitarist, Marco Cappelli. The 'Sonatina for Flute and Piano' was written in 1947, its style owing something to both Fortner (Henze's teacher in Heidelberg at this time) and Hindemith. 'Boulevard Solitude,' composed in 1952, established Henze as one of the leading composers of his generation, particularly in the field of music theatre. 'Ein Kleines Potpourri' was concocted from the opera for chamber ensemble, The driving 'Perpetuum Mobile' movement is a transposition of the opera's savage Intermezzo. The 'Drei Tentos' are from Kammermusik  for tenor, guitar and octet composed in 1958, when Henze, who had been living in Italy for years, spent some time in Greece. Here, fragments of Holderlin's text are evoked without being enunciated. The kaleidoscopic 'Carillon, Récitatif, Masque' is scored for the unusual plucked trio of mandolin, guitar and harp. 'Toccata Mistica' is one of only a handful of works Henze composed for piano. Its fluid, impetuous tidal waves of sound allude to a disfigured seascape, with the grand piano cast adrift like a raft amid the breakers. The seven 'Neue Volkslieder und Hirtengesänge' are derived from Henze's stays in Styria, an Austrian region where folksongs feature the bassoon. Here the folksong melodies are transformed verse by verse and influenced by a complex harmonic and contrapuntal texture in which the guitar accompaniment plays a key role."
