Fantastic music adventure,

This review is from: Schoenberg: Gurrelieder (Audio CD)
This piece of music is interesting in one thing. People who do not know Schoenberg so much usually think, that the composer wrote only atonal music usually written in the twelve tone scale. But that is a mistake. He experienced a wonderful early 20th century post-romantic period which is, according to me, one of the best music periods ever! But only until the WW I, when came the depression and disappointment from the way which took the world... Gurrelieder is a message from the Middle Ages, about love, pain and fidelity. It is a great celebration of life, accompanied by top world class music. I have compared all accessible recordings and this one fulfills the listeners expectations the best. Great contribution to it is also fact it was produced by DECCA music company, which has the best reputation amongst recording companies and provides an excellent sound experience. I can only recommend it!
