AGP60 originally included four symphonic poems by Wilhelm Killmayer that I have since discovered have been re-issued by Wergo and are available at the Schott Music Shop, together with a number of other compositions by Killmayer. Having discovered that, I have withdrawn the torrent, and am making the one remaining AGP60 track available for direct download here. Three more out-of-print works by Killmayer make up part of AGP61.
My apologies to all concerned for this mistake. The good news is that I can now recommend the Schott Music Shop to AGP partisans as an excellent resource for avant-garde music CDs.
In the symphonic poems withdrawn from this installment, Killmayer managed to combine late 20th century techniques with tonal harmonies that in places sound right out of the orchestral tone poems of Franz Liszt, in a way that is musically intriguing and not at all reactionary. More information on the composer can be found on the Wilhelm Killmayer page at the Schott Music Shop.
