Wagner: Siegfried-Idyll; Schönberg: Verklärte Nacht; Mahler: Adagio; Berg: Lyric Suite; "String Idylls" / Bruno Walter, Columbia Symphony Orchestra

Notes & Reviews:

The string ensemble was a favorite medium for German composers. Composers from Wagner to Berg used the form to narrate and set scenes without words. The genre can be almost operatic in feel, offering both entrancing and exalting moments. Bruno Walter leads the Columbia Symphony Orchestra and George Sebastian heads the Lepzig Gewandhaus in a program of four works for string ensemble.
