All the works on this album illustrate the different ways in which Eisler realised his concept of a synthesis between technical and musical progress. Although their titles all appear to suggest "pure" concert music, they all started life as film or theatre music. The same is true of Eisler´s six Suites for orchestra, which were written between 1930 and 1934 and which are all based on film scores adapted for the concert hall.
