KHCD-2012-050DL (STEREO) - Orff: "Street Song ("Gassenhauer") and other pieces from "Schulwerk" - Instrumental Ensemble and the Tölz Boys Choir/Carl Orff - Orff's "Schulwerk" composed between 1930 and 1933, was an outgrowth of his teaching experiences and was mainly aimed at young children. He believed that any person could learn musicianship if one could separate the musical elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, form and dynamics, then learn to combine them. This collection serves as a sampler of the wide variations of rhythm that Orff developed around the unique instruments created for this music. An effective learning tool, as well as an entertaining, intriguing album of unusual music. Thanks to Jim Rockhill for suggesting this reissue.
