Performer Conductor Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

As founder and director of Vienna's Philharmonic Chorus, Franz Schreker conducted world premieres of works by contemporary composers. It is surprising, therefore, that he wrote relatively few independent choral works. Most of these are recorded here for the first time: The Orpheus Vocal Ensemble, under Michael Alber, makes an essential contribution to this largely unknown side of Schreker with this survey of his choral music. The recording is rounded off with choral works by Schreker's teacher Robert Fuchs, his contemporary Walter Braunfels and choral arrangements of three Schreker songs by Clytus Gottwald.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The Orpheus ensemble sings with accurate pitch and diction as well as colorful dynamic shading. Alber directs the music with insight, and good accompaniment from Konrad Elser. The notes include German and English texts.
