The Welte Mignon Mystery Vol. VI features Ernst von Dohnányi today playing
all his 1905 interpretations of selected works by Schubert, Liszt, Beethoven,
Brahms, Chopin, Schumann and, himself, Dohnányi.
Ever so often an enthusiastic record company discovers the "Welte" phenomenon
and tries to convey, individually or collectively, the fascination of these
paper reels which date from the beginning of the 20th century.
Tacet's Andreas Spreer succumbed to the fascination of the thought that never,
until this day, has a thorough analysis or study of this topic been carried out.
There are a wealth of recordings containing a rather arbitrary or incomplete
selection of works. Often enough simply the reels which happened to be available
at the time were recorded.
The TACET series wants to go further; its aim is to do archiving work and to
conserve, in "Intercord" quality at least, or better, all that is important or
interesting out of that vast catalogue. As far as is at all possible, all the
reel recordings which one artist made for Welte should be recorded.
With our previous CDs from the Welte Mystery series we were successful up to
now, and with this recording we were too. This new release portrays the
Hungarian pianist, composer, conductor and music college head Ernö (Ernst von)
Dohnányi. He plays - hardly surprisingly - works by Franz Liszt, but also by
Franz Schubert and others, as well as two of his own works. What an artist he
was! The large number of rolls meant that a double CD was required. We are
offering it for the price of a single CD.
