Notes & Reviews:

This volume of Robert Craft's acclaimed Schoenberg series presents the composer's favourite of his own orchestral works, the 'Violin Concerto'. Conceived in grand style and dedicated to his 'dear friend and fellow warrior' Webern, it draws on the techniques of melodic variation and development that Schoenberg so admired in Brahms' music to reach a majestic conclusion. In the other shorter works, written during or after World War II, Schoenberg uses striking vocal and instrumental combinations to create intensely moving and dramatic music. 'De Profundis' was Schoenberg's last completed composition.
