Description: While his orchestral works can be a little conservative (see 10R004 above), these songs stretch further stylistically, the early 1904 Stelldichein sharing not just poet, instrumental forces and key with Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht but also a pungent Expressionism. The Phantasus songs are pleasantly laid back and lyrical (1906), a touch of Mahler pervades the 1908 Liebeslieder, the Kinderlieder (1932-44) simple and uncomplicated - something for every collector of the late and neo-romantic German song. German texts (Children’s Songs are in English). Sophie Klußmann (soprano), Sebastian Noack (baritone), Oliver Triendl (piano), Soloists of the Deutsche Symphonie Orchester Berlin.
