Notes & Reviews:

The Observer
this two-disc set fills in his fascinating background as a vocal and orchestral composer around the beginning of the 20th century...The bombastic Symphony No 1 is a student work redolent of Bruckner and Brahms, and like the later Tanzspiel (a collection of dances) comes across as derivative, though effective. More striking are the vocal pieces, ripe and late romantic but showing Schreker's growing harmonic individuality.
