Notes & Reviews:

Marx is a composer whose time has seemingly come or, rather, returned, after he inexplicably fell from the public's attention having been widely regarded as one of the leading lights of Austrian music in the early part of the 20th century. His marvelous 'lieder' have long been the most renowned part of his output, and for good reason. They represent outstanding examples of the tradition as practiced by his illustrious forebears (Brahms, Schumann, Wolf, Mahler), while extending it in a wholly individual fashion. While his fundamental aesthetic is the richest, fullest romanticism, hints of the modernism in the air in the turbulent first decade of the 20th century keep surfacing; for example in the unstable, glittering pyrotechnics of the surreal 'Pierrot Dandy', or the extraordinary range of expression in the Whitman setting 'Youth and Age'. Even in the songs that more closely conform to the conventions of the Romantic Lied, the abandoned and infatuated lovers, nature symbolism and intimations of mortality are handled with an unusually acute sense of dramatic contour and precisely etched characterization.
