Description: We first met this Austrian Jewish composer who emigrated to the U.S. in 1938 back in 2014 (08Q049) where we said “Here is another remarkable melodist...”. Ditto for his expansive, 49-minute trio of 1905 which sits firmly in the Viennese Romantic tradition downstream from Schubert and Brahms, with one lovely tune following another, whereas the songs, written only four years later, look forward to the lyrical intensity of Korngold. German-English texts. Laura Roelofs (violin), Stefan Koch (cello), Mary Siciliano (piano), Seth Keeton (bass-baritone).
