Notes and Editorial Reviews

Othmar Schoeck's Notturno, over forty minutes in length, is the featured work on this new recording by the Leipzig String Quartet and the baritone Stefan Genz. It is absolutely overwhelming how the musicians are able to discover so many multicolored and nuanced facets in a work initially creating the impression of great difficulty. Franz Schreker's rarely heard ballet pantomime Der Wind (The Wind) functions as a contrast.
