The Complete Symphonies

Intense, exciting and uncompromising – these words aptly describe the orchestral work of the great symphonic composer Heinz Winbeck (1946–2019), a composer who revived the old form of the “symphony” with inner truthfulness, existential urgency and masterful craftsmanship. Winbeck’s symphonies have been compared to the symphonies of Mahler. By giving him titles, he reflected on topics such as wars and cruelty, his parents’ generation, ecology, human loneliness, and near-death experiences. This complete edition is the first publication of all five symphonies in one volume – interpreted by renowned soloists, conductors, choir and orchestras, for the first time allowing a large audience to also hear and experience them on album.
