Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The three works on this CD illustrate the diversity of Arnold Schoenberg's (1874 -- 1951) compositional styles. The CD includes Schoenberg's difficult masterwork, the String Quartet no. 2 in f-sharp minor (1908), which marks the transition from tonality to atonality, and two latter, lesser-known works, the set of six a cappella mixed choruses (1928, 1948) and the Suite in G for string orchestra (1934). For those who think of Schoenberg only in terms of dissonance and difficulty, these latter two works will prove surprisingly accessible.

Schoenberg composed the String Quartet no. 2 in the midst of a marital crisis. His wife had left him for a young artist, but she was persuaded to return to Schoenberg, possibly for the sake of the couple's two children. Her paramour committed suicide. The passionate, introspective, and harsh character of the quartet likely reflects the composer's tortured emotions when he wrote it. The work is of unusual form in that the third and fourth movements set poems by Stephan George (1868 -- 1933), a favorite of the composer. The Fred Sherry String Quartet and soprano Jennifer Welch-Babidge capture the tension and smoldering feelings of this work in this 2005 recording.

The work opens with an allegro which is just within tonality and heavily influenced by Wagner. (In fact, the main theme of the movement is derived from a Wagner theme.) The movement is dense and compact with heavy use of counterpoint. It is music of anguish. In the scherzo, Schoenberg moves to atonality. The movement alternates between a brusque, quick phrase and a longer slower response. Near the end of the movement, Schoenberg offers a sardonic quotation of the familiar song, "Auch du Lieber Augustin", which includes the words "all is lost.
