Notes and Editorial Reviews

Julius Weismann, (1879-1950) studied music with Rheinberger, von Herzogenberg and Thuille and worked in Munich and Freiburg as a conductor, teacher and composer. His operas, notably Leonce und Lena (1924), were successful between the wars; he also wrote copiously in other genres. His catalog of over 150 works include eleven String Quartets, two of which Georg Mais, the conductor of this new recording has arranged for chamber orchestra. Weismann’s style is difficult to classify; it exhibits influences from German romanticism, especially the music of Schubert, Schumann and Brahms, as well as impressionistic echoes.
