Misc. Comments

The Ninth Symphony from 1945 is Paul von Klenau’s last comprehensive work. Until recently hardly anyone knew about its existence. The score for full symphony orchestra, choir and soloists was found among Klenau’s manuscripts in Vienna in 2005 and later bought by The Royal Library. The work was performed for the first time in March 2014 – almost 70 years after Klenau's death. The first performance, based on the score and parts provided by DCM, took place at the Danish National Broadcasting Corporation's concert house on 20 March 2014. A recording of the concert is available at DR's web site and a recording of the work (perhaps the same) is on CD from DaCapo Records.
