3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but Sinaisky's performances are the ones to go for, 2 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Schreker - Orchestral Works (Audio CD)
Conlon's collection of these Schreker orchestral pieces appeared around the same time as a couple of Chandos discs conducted by Sinaisky featuring a similar but broader selection of Schreker works.

In both the 'Intermezzo' and the 'Romantic Suite', works from early in Schreker's career, there is little to choose between the two conductors. However, in the two weightier works, 'Prelude to a Drama' and 'Vorspiel zu einer grossen Oper', Sinaisky conveys the infectious lyricism and sumptuousness of the music to a much greater degree than Conlon.

The EMI recording quality is good, but ultimately the rival Sinaisky performances are the ones to go for. I would also highly recommend the Euroarts DVD of 'Die Gezeicheneten' for those interested in Schreker's music.
