Work introduction

After hearing the Berlin performance of this work, Wilhelm Furtwängler immediately scheduled it for one of his concerts; the piece also moved a critic to assert that Heinrich Kaminski was “the richest inner life of the younger generation.” At once devout and hymnal, jubilant and lyrical, Dorische Musik [“Dorian Musik”] is the expression of Kaminski’s affinity with Bach and his response to the ideology of National Socialism. Kaminski, who founded the Order of the Loving, also used his music to express a devotion to art as a revelation of the Divine.
