Notes & Reviews:

"Craft elicits impressive clarity and delicacy from the Philharmonia Orchestra in the two-movement Op. 21 Symphony and in the Six Pieces Op. 6 (even the super-soft tam-tam strokes in the latter's fourth piece make themselves felt) while imparting a welcome conversational sensibility to the Concerto for Nine Instruments' mosaic-like scoring. Much as I admire DG soprano Christiane Oelze's frightening accuracy and tonal evenness in the Op. 16, 17, and 18 song groups, Jennifer Welch-Babidge manipulates her smaller voice to more playful effect, abetted by her like-minded instrumental collaborators. Christopher Oldfather's limpid, direct account of the Op. 27 Variations merits special mention, even in the face of Piotr Anderszewski's extraordinarily detailed reference version (Virgin Classics). Lastly, Craft's booklet notes match the intelligence and insight of his music making. May subsequent volumes of the Naxos Robert Craft Webern Edition share this one's sonic and interpretive distinctions." -Classics Today (10/10)
