Notes & Reviews:

On his first recording as the conductor of the Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn, Stefan Blunier offers a look at four important phases in the life of the composer Arnold Schoenberg. The selection ranges from the late-romantic Notturno through the Orchestral Songs op. 8 to the atonal Orchestral Pieces op. 16 and the highly romantic transcription of the Prelude and Fugue BWV 552 by Johann Sebastian Bach. Schoenberg's Notturno for harp, solo violin, and string orchestra was long regarded as lost. The work was later identified and edited on the basis of original fingerings in the violoncello part. The Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn has now recorded this work for the first time.

Gramophone Magazine
What Manuela Uhl lacks in amplitude, she more than compensates with agility, always a desired quality when interpreting Schoenberg... the disc deserves to convert a few Schoenberg skeptics
