Description: Leading the way here are the Austrian Kornauth's 13-minute Fantasie of 1912-15, a lyrical work which leans more toward Korngold and Franz Schmidt (one of Kornauth's teachers) than to Schreker (another of his teachers); also of interest is Ravel's own single-piano version of his 1929 Aubade for piano and 18 instruments.
