Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

In the early 20th century Schönberg's opus 21 was revolutionary - thanks in part to his use of Sprechgesang, a spoken part with notated pitches and rhythms. The full recognition of this ground-breaking work took some time. Due to the influence of several composer colleagues and their enthusiasm for Pierrot Lunaire, it was soon considered a landmark modern work. Max Kowalski (1882 - 1956), an original and almost completely forgotten song composer, chose twelve poems. Six of those overlap with those set by Schönberg, and are featured on this recording. Kowalski composed his song cycle (published in 1913, the same year as Schönberg's) for the more familiar ensemble of voice and piano. In contrast to Schönberg's often nightmarish interpretation, Kowalski highlights the lighter and more ironic side of Hartleben's translated poems and lends a "cabaret" tone to the collection.
