Originally performed as a live accompaniment for a 1995 theater-dance production about the life of painter Egon Schiele, this is the both the exception to the Rachel's rule and their defining moment. Though they are normally a three-headed, multiperson new-music and classical ensemble centered around Jason Noble (ex-Rodan), Christian Frederickson, and Rachel Grimes, this suite was written entirely by Grimes and performed by Grimes (on piano), Frederickson (viola), and cellist Wendy Doyle. As always, the music (not to mention the letter-pressed packaging) is spellbinding; the fact that this is classical music by--and for--people who grew up on indie rock in no way diminishes it, nor does it make the music too low-brow for those with a classical background. For a more complete picture of what the entire Rachel's ensemble is capable of, both Handwriting and The Sea and the Bells are recommended. --Randy Silver

Songs for Ego Schiele is a record that will enchant any music fan who is looking for something more than mainstream pop (in all its rock-reggae-trance etc. guises). It contains beautiful melodies and harmonies, beautifully played (as accurately described in Randy Silver's Amazon review). Most importantly, perhaps, it is an album that makes its listeners seek out other contemporary classical music by composers such as Arvo Part, Gorecki, Ligeti and Kurtag - it did for me and my pop-rock-dub-etc. listening mates. Furnish your gaff with beautiful sounds by buying this album, it's a modern masterpiece.

I was looking for a new band..i found rachel's.Phenomenal..it's more than just sounding like sountrack music. it's change in mood haves you believe your in a piece of contempary art or even one of those abstract cool adverts on TV.
I found it enjoyable to listen to, not just to put on in the background but to sit and chill out to it and listen in silence.
For me it delivers chills and beauty from within to make you glow on your stimulated fleshy emotioal surfaces..it makes an impression in other words.
If you are like me in anyway and you yern for experimental music and will never stop that quest, then this band will appeal greatly to you. I think this band along with 'sigor ros' have the quality that allow you to listen to them anytime,any mood.I can imAgine slapping this on when i've got a hangover and feel a little bit cured from my weekend binge.
I find it hard to believe that i haven't heard of these people beforehand because i feel like (and so will you) that we have all been missing out. Buy it!it's steal of the century

More beautiful than the moon 2 Sep 2004
By Mona Parrish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is rare that an instrumental album grabs and holds my attention so strongly. Music for Egon Schiele was a gift from an old friend on my twentieth birthday last year. It was raining when I picked up the mail. The second it spun, I was lost in the deepness of a cello and the compassion of a piano. I remember riding the bus to class with headphones that day as tears began to stream down my cheeks. The same emotions once brought forth by nostalgia or love emerged shockingly from this music. There is nothing like this album; I would reccommend it to anyone with a pulse. I give it a thousand stars. I've never heard any of the other albums by Rachel's completely; Systems/ Layers seems more experimental, the Sea and the Bells sounds very much like this one only softer and more seabound, Handwriting is up next. Here lies some true talent and beauty.

Inspiring 26 May 2003
By Aage Nielsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The simplicity and warmth from the piano/viola/cello trio configuration on Music for Egon Schiele set this album apart from the other Rachel's recordings. As on their other albums, they compose their own material and play beautifully. I am part of a bass clarinet/viola duo that idolizes this group and we admire any chamber group that can get filed in the indie rock section. Music for Egon Schiele is our (mutually) favorite album. One of my former bass clarinet students (really into indie rock) turned me on to Rachel's and I am forever grateful.

The Musical Voice of Egon Schiele's Art 15 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is a repetitive, hypnotic quality to this music written in minor keys. Each beat is a pulse that matches the length of Schiele's calligraphic draftsmanship--just trace (while listening) around one of his drawings to see what I mean. The pathos of his work is equally expressed in the music and reflects, to me, at least, the sadness of his struggle and the composer's sympathy with his unfortunate premature death. Yet, for different reasons, both artists have succeeded. Too bad there's no video of the dance to accompany this fine musical offering.

Poetic, visual and powerful. 19 July 2000
By Writing Chemistry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The whole album is a masterpiece; it flows so naturally and so beautifully like a musical narrative. It is so powerful that it creates mental landscapes in my mind which are so visual that they are almost tangible. The melody is so charming yet so agonizingly painful; and this dichotomy is a very true reflection of Egon Schiele and his art works. I would say that the author of the music had a very accurate and piercing insight into the subject matter and delivered an amazing musical interpretation on it. Perhaps this is a little far fetched, but to me, this music is as soul-searching and sensual as a Herman Hesse novel and, also a little bit like that animation AeonFlux, just in terms of how much it forces you to focus on one of your senses. AeonFlux forces you to open your eyes, but Music for Egon Schile forces you to open your ears. And strangely, it also feels as if this very melodious music is giving me a taste and feel of "silence" which is quite paradoxical. The quality of performance and recording are both impeccable. There is not one bit I would change about this CD; it is perfect, it is absolute, it is true to itself. If you work alone at night quite often, this music will keep you awake far better than most techno's such as Prodigy or Chemical Brothers. It is just that intense and potent. Personally this music helps me to focus on my innerself. It takes me into that very private, personal and intimate space inside. It is poetic, lyrical, cerebral and sensual. It is a work of a true genius.

buy it. now. 20 Jan 2005
By theo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
don't even question this purchase. i'm into some pretty weird stuff, but i have yet to play this masterpiece for someone and not have them immediately want it. listen to the sound clips--yes, the whole album is this good. it's one of the few albums i own (including all the classic indie/punk you can think of) that i can literally put on any time and re-live moments of my life to. it's good stuff--drive around in the snow with a friend and make memories. yes.
