Notes & Reviews:

Robert Craft's abiding love and understanding of Anton Webern's music have made him an internationally renowned champion of this elusive composer's oeuvre. Its utter originality, pristine architecture and refined emotionalism yield rich rewards indeed. Whether transforming the 'Ricercata' from J.S. Bach's 'A Musical Offering' into a kaleidoscope of orchestral sounds, creating vivid new colors through ever-changing vocal and instrumental groupings, revelling in multi-layered polyphony or cultivating the purest simplicity, Webern reveals new musical worlds which remain as fresh and fascinating today as when they were written.
