Format: Audio CD
Posthumous fame, or at least recognition, to which the recording industry contributes can help
composers back from a peripheral postion to a fairer, if belated realignment within the ranks of the
rich tradition they have always belonged to. Thus is the case of Franz Schubert (1797 - 1828) and Hans Gál(1890 - 1987), two major scions of the Viennese high musical culture who are wonderfully conjoined on two new CDs under the heading "Kindred Spirits." The performances by the Northern Sinfonia under Thomas Zehetmair, include première recordings of Gáls's symphonies nos 1 and 2.

Their two biographies clearly show with what faith in their personal and inalienable voices and despite severe tribulations threy kept going even without the motor of public esteem.
Schubert wrote prolifically (and seemingly without effort); the music is timelessly beautiful. He rarely received exposure beyond his own private circle, owing perhaps to the over-prominence of his mighty contemporary Beethoven, and he died at a tragically early age.

Hans Gál wrote prolifically and seemingly without effort - music too, which is timelessly beautiful - and achieved, while still quite young, a strong reputation as a composer, teacher, writer and musicologist; he was widely disseminated all over Germany and Austria, before losing all official posts in the wake of Nazi politics. There followed loss of members of his family and livelihood, later even losing historical "relevance," if one applies the doubtful criteria of postwar modernist perceptions, and indeed Gál lived on to be almost a hundred.
