SCHOENBERG & BODLEY - VOCAL WORKS
Two major cycles, extensive in duration and exceptionally powerful. Arnold Schoenberg's Opus 15 (
Das Buch der hängenden Gärten ) is a seminal, revolutionary work, composed in 1908-9 and which is considered by many to be the first truly modernist composition - certainly in vocal music. Today it still sounds exploratory and adventurous. Its 15 sections are all settings of poems by Stefan George.
