To be respected by Franz Liszt as a composer was praise enough, to be praised by him was almost a knighthood. And this was bestowed upon Adolf Jensen, who came from Königsberg and amongst other things was active as a composer in Baden-Baden. Under its chief conductor Pavel Baleff, the fabulous Philharmonie Baden Baden portrays him on their new GENUIN CD. The Wedding Music, On the Road to Emmaus, the Heiress of Montfort: he who immerses himself in the passionate sounds will certainly be immediately hooked on someone who has almost been forgotten. Top scores for audacity, spirit of discovery and the high level of musicality of this world premiere recording!

Classical Lost and Found
"Sensitive performances by the Baden-Baden Philharmonic under their principle conductor Pavel Baleff make a strong case for these Jensen gems. Romantic orchestral music enthusiasts will definitely want to consider getting this disc."

"...extremely able orchestra perform every note as though it were a recently exhumed treasure, while the Genuin recorded sound is warm and embracing."
