About

Volume VII of the Robert Craft Schoenberg Collection begins with the early Six Songs for Soprano and Orchestra, in which the obvious harmonic and melodic influence of Wagner is counterbalanced by a more personal instrumentation.

For the originality and the musical beauties of Six Pieces for Male Chorus to be performed with accurate intonation, utmost clarity and balance of the polyphonic lines has taken three-quarters of a century.

Kol Nidre is a little-known small-scale masterpiece. The excerpts from the ‘Golden Calf’ scene of Schoenberg’s unfinished opera Moses und Aron depict the sacrifice of the Young Girl and a quartet of Naked Virgins, followed by an orgy of destruction and suicide.
