Notes & Reviews:

Naxos's Robert Craft Collection has been acclaimed as 'one of the most enticing Schoenberg collections around' (MusicWeb on 8557523), with Fanfare proclaiming that 'Craft outshines them all' (8557526), to mention only two critical commendations. He has twice won the Grand Prix du Disque, as well as the Edison Prize for his landmark recordings of Schoenberg, Webern and Varese, and countless other awards. Craft's consummate artistry and unique insight continue to bear fruit with this volume featuring diverse works spanning more than twenty years of Schoenberg's controversial and highly influential career.

"the late, febrile String Trio of 1947 [is] played with wiry intensity by Rolf Schulte, Richard O'Neill and Fred Sherry" -The Guardian ***

"The latest in Craft's Schoenberg series for Naxos is a bizarre but bracing sequence. First comes the late, great String Trio, a profoundly concentrated but expressively liberated single span...and afterwards the Septet-Suite, one of his most dazzling essays, played with fierce gusto." -Sunday Times ***

"An intriguing assortment...Insightful performances" -BBC Music Magazine ****

"The performance has the right idea in not attempting to gloss over the discontinuities [of the String Trio]...[these players] give a good sense of the way angry expression dissolves into wistful lyricism at the end...Schoenberg's voice... is heard to powerful effect." -Gramophone Magazine
