Notes & Reviews:

Purity of sound and perfect craftsmanship marked Anton Webern's journey from his intensely expressive early songs through to the new perspectives cultivated in his Opp. 23 and 25 settings. Webern 'rehabilitated the power of sound' and in so doing broke new ground in the Bagatelles for string quartet and in the String Quartet, Op. 28. This recording, completing Mr. Craft's second Webern cycle, is rounded off with the powerful Cantata, Op. 29 and Webern's 1923 arrangement of Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony, Op. 9. Throughout his career, Robert Craft (b. 1923) has conducted symphonic, orchestral, operatic and large ensemble performances, including world premiere works by leading 20th c. composers. His many recordings of music by Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Schoenberg and Anton Webern recordings for the Naxos Label have received critical acclaim, up to and including Grammy® Award nominations.

The Guardian, 6th May 2015
What all the songs have in common...is brevity: each is a perfectly etched miniature, a nugget of impacted lyricism, and Arnold unwraps them with immense care.

I feel fortunate to finally get to review a mostly- Webern release. I love this music. I remember a class at a junior-high school music camp where I was taught to compose a 12-tone piece without ever being exposed to a single musical example. Many music students grow up associating Webern and his followers with tedious analyses and pointlessly penciling numbers in scores. Even in these dodecaphobic times there is an audience for this music, and if you are interested you will find this release outstanding.
