The choral music of the 20th-century Swiss composer Max Kuhn shows a tonal, delicately expressive idiom which deserves better treatment than these raw performances offer. His somewhat spikier piano works are better handled and provide an interesting glimpse of non-mainstream creativity. Jan Smaczny
