Toch was born in Vienna in a home where music had no place. He lived and taught in Mannheim until 1929 and emigrated to California in 1936. One of his students in the . was Andre Previn; he lived until 1964. Toch was prominent in the modern music movement, with Hindemith and others, but he didn’t follow the dictates of the Schoenberg School of serialism until his last string quartet. His music is not strongly tonal, but characterized by strong formal logic and structure. The Piano Quintet is also an unusual work in that Toch wrote later that he never should have written it – I do not think that the sound combination of piano and strings is right and at the advantage of both instrument groups. The work lacks some of the expected Toch touches of humor and irony, but is an interesting work that should be part of chamber music programs.
Ensemble – The American Art Quartet. Piano – André Previn. Producer – Lester Koenig. Viola – Sanford Schonbach.
While living in self-imposed exile in America, Ernst Toch described himself as "the world's most forgotten composer of the twentieth century. It was, alas, too true a description. The Piano Quintet is another big, four-movement work that has the scope of Brahms, the lyricism of Schumann, and the hard-edged attack of early Shostakovich. For those who revere the art of Weill or Hindemith, these works by Toch will be an exciting new discovery.
