Notes & Reviews:

Zemlinsky, Korngold and Bloch also shared the fate of so many other important musical voices of the early twentieth century when their music was banned, and their lives and careers upended, by the Nazi regime. All three names can be found in the infamous Lexikon der Juden in der Musik, first published under the auspices of the Nazi Party in 1940. These policies, and others, created a rupture in the seamless heritage of German music, removing thousands of worthy works from performance, from publication and--for many-- from posterity. It is the hope that musicians and music-lovers everywhere will hear these three works, and be intrigued to listen to--and to play--these and other chamber works by the many composers whose fortunes were curtailed by unfortunate timing on the stage of twentieth-century Europe. James Conlon

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This is a well-programmed collection of works by three composers with some things in common. All were Jewish, born in Europe in the late 19th Century, and all moved to the United States. There is a good variety of styles represented here.
