Unique collection of chamber music works by Charles Koechlin. Includes world première recordings November 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Charles Koechlin's birth. Comprehensive, trilingual booklet with texts by Otfrid Nies and Robert Orledge, respected specialists in Koechlin’s music.

The 150th anniversary of Charles Koechlin’s birth in November 2017 is marked by the reissue of all the Koechlin recordings made by the Südwestrundfunk. They are compiled in two boxed sets of seven CDs each: Box 1 – vocal and orchestral music; Box 2 – piano and chamber music. This comprehensive Koechlin project began in 2001 as a collaboration between the Radio Symphony Orchestra of SWR Stuttgart, conductor Heinz Holliger, and Otfrid Nies of the Charles Koechlin Archive in Kassel.

This 7-CD box of chamber works by the great French composer Charles Koechlin is unique in several respects: first, there is no comparable collection of this composer's chamber music; second, most of the performers were members of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra who became familiar with Koechlin’s works over many years; third, this familiarity produced highly relaxed and knowledgeable performances, which is naturally a huge advantage.

The comprehensive booklet contains an introduction to Charles Koechlin’s life and music, plus detailed information about individual works, prepared by two respected specialists in this music – Otfrid Nies and Robert Orledge. Also included are photographs by Charles Koechlin himself.

Together with the 7-CD Orchestral Works boxed set, this represents a unique compendium of the music of this brilliant French composer.
