Description: What makes Koffler so remarkable is that he was not only the first Pole to adopt twelve-tone serialism but that he often used folk materials and aligned himself with Neo-Classicism (the op. 6 Folksongs were his last non-serial work). Reconciling folk traditions with serialism puts him in comparison with Skalkottas, Dallapiccola and Vogel. A major work here is the set of Strauss variations whose boldness, humor and biting wit scandalized reviewers when they were first performed in 1936. Martin von der Heydt (piano).
