Notes & Reviews:

Joseph Marx was a master of lyrical atmospheric music. He has often been compared to Hugo Wolf, who was twenty years his senior, because song was the foundation on which their respective creative oeuvres rested. While Wolf was a bold, stormy innovator, Marx was a Dionysian who both expanded and maintained and precisely in his song oeuvre turned more to the blending of contemporary trends with the past in splendid new attire than to an imponderable future. Angelika Kirchschlager, one of today's most renowned lied singers, is absolutely captivated by the lyrical charm and the incredibly multifaceted expressive power of Marx's songs, selected a representative sampling together with her piano partner Anthony Spiri, and produced an exemplary recording for CPO. The songs from the 'Italienisches Liederbuch' of 1912, for example, display all sorts of different moods (dramatic, delightful, gloomy, humorous), and one quickly understands why Marx's compositions were so popular during his lifetime: for every atmosphere or mood he perfected and uniquely shaped a musical whole.

International Record Review
there's the simplest matching of music to words to remind us what a craftsman Marx was. That is a greatly underestimated virtue. We owe a debt to Kirchschlager for taking this craftsman's songs under her wing and letting them soar again.
