Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Austrian composer Joseph Marx was for much of his career a musical authority of world renown. His songs were amongst his greatest musical achievements and he was certainly thought of as the rightful successor to Hugo Wolf. Unfortunately, today his name and his music are almost unknown and we are indeed indebted to the Joseph Marx Society for their sterling efforts to restore Marx to his rightful position in the musical catalogue. The music on this recording is contrapuntal but melodic, full of sonority, and surprisingly timeless and modern. There are a number of premiere recordings.

BBC Music Magazine
The luxuriantly recorded Chandos disc is particularly welcome for featuring premiere recordings of four relatively early choral pieces including the lavishly scored Herbstchor an Pan... Performed here with considerable emotional conviction by Jirí Belohlávek and the massed forces of the Trinity Boys Choir and the BBC Symphony Chorus and Orchestra, it is by far the most striking of these works... Those drawn to the creamy sonorities of a soprano voice soaring above a lush orchestral fabric will find much to savour in Christine Brewer's warm and ecstatic renditions of 'Barkarole', 'Selige Nacht' and 'Sommerlied'...

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Post-Wagnerian richness and lush harmony marks Marx's orchestral songs. Christine Brewer has the floating purity of voice to soar easily over Marx's beautifully judged textures in for instance "Selige Nacht" and "Maienblüten", both rapt in manner and unashamedly reflective, the latter suggesting the atmosphere of Strauss's Four Last Songs." Gramophone Magazine, March 2009
