I had never heard of the Swiss composer Caspar Diethelm before coming across this new 3-disc set of his symphonies and other orchestral works from Guild while browsing MusicWeb International. Reviewer Marc Rochester was very enthusiastic about this release, nominating it for Recording of the Month. He mentions Sibelius, Hindemith, Nielsen, Martinu, and Bartok as passing influences on Diethelm's style, but asserts that he has an individual style. It sounds quite tantalizing to say the least!

As arguably the most discriminating, articulate, and balanced reviewer on site, a sensible argument can be made that it's you here who should first acquire the set and report back to the rest of us any and all impressions.

Eh.....are you really referring to me, Greg?? If so I totally disclaim such an accolade! I am an arguably over-enthusiastic advocate for the music of the composers whose music appeals to me. No more and no less

...but yes, I probably shall succumb to the temptation to buy these cds. If someone else does so before me then I shall look forward to hearing their impressions with great interest and respect.
