About

Trained as a violinist and as a composer at the Vienna Conservatory, Franz Schreker belongs to that group of composers whose careers were eclipsed by the events of 1933 in Germany, but whose music is now enjoying a welcome revival. Schreker was a prominent figure in early 20th-century Austro-German music, his reputation as an opera composer rivaling that of Richard Strauss. He wrote a relatively small amount of purely orchestral music, which is well represented on this programme. The recording will serve as an excellent introduction to a composer whose idiom often comes as a pleasant surprise to those unfamiliar with his work.
