In the GDR, Friedrich Goldmann (1941–2009) and Georg Katzer (1935–2019) were the defining minds within a group of then younger composers, which had been growing since the late 1960s and which – increasingly audibly – contradicted the official demands for ‟Socialist Realism” in artistic creation. They countered the clichés of musical popularism and mass appeal with compositional concepts aimed at absolutely self-determined stylistics and a degree of technical complexity corresponding to international professional standards. Thus, in the four compositions compiled on this release, one can observe with ease the departure from serial hermeticism and the openness for sound games, with conventional tonality and traditional craftsmanship, which consciously thematises the relationship of these works with historical European music traditions.
