String Idylls WAGNER-MAHLER-SCHÖNBERG-BERG

A large string ensemble was the most expressive vehicle for German composers from Wagner to Berg. Used both to narrate and set the scene in operas without words, it may feel somewhat over-sentimental today. This novel line-up, with its clearly operatic feel, has entrancing, even exalting moments despite its morbid undertones. Pure delight.
