Notes & Reviews:

This fourth volume of the Naxos Robert Craft Schoenberg Collection features Schoenberg's largest orchestral work. 'Variations, Op. 31' is a sequence of short and clearly delineated pieces. Their succession follows the tradition of a fast, full-orchestra piece succeeded by a slower one for few instruments, each with a contrasting character, rhythm, and sonority. The highly inventive 'Serenade' for septet and bass- it also includes a mandolin and guitar- is an exuberant, melodious work which makes frequent use of Classical models.
