Notes & Reviews:

With his personality characterized by emotional extremes, Franz Schubert was in no position to evoke a perfectly wonderful world in his songs. On the contrary, in his compositions he challenged any fine illusion with a subtle and sensual touch. Unlike Franz Schubert, for a long time Franz Schreker managed to create an idyllic, wonderful and successful world with his compositions. Sometimes, he was even more successful as a composer than Richard Strauss, to the latter's great chagrin. But then the Nazis came. Wonderful world, where are you? Erich Wolfgang Korngold, he, too, a Jew, fled to the 'brave new world', to America. Korngold achieved great fame with his film scores, but on the screen, everything is only a (fine) illusion. Anne Schwanewilms
