Notes & Reviews:

Schreker's last completed dramatic composition is the melodrama Das Weib des Intaphernes, composed on a ballad by Stucken in the early 1930's in Estoril, near Lisbon, and in Berlin. Once more the sure hand of the dramatist in masterly control of his means is shown with a few concise motives he creates cohesion of form and can employ a simple triadic motive as certainly as an inscrutably rugged atonal fugato.

The Flip Side
This three-CD set is an excellent introduction to [Franz Schreker's] skillfulness in many genres. Disc one comprises [Franz Schreker's] impressive Symphony No. 1, dramatic melodrama The Wife of Intaphernes and choir work Psalm 116; several orchestral works and arrangements of Hugo Wolf songs fill disc two; and piano transcriptions of his orchestral works round out disc three. The uniformly good vocal and instrumental performances provide a well-rounded portrait of an unjustly neglected composer.
