I can only say the despite Schoenbergs reputation for being a difficult listen, I didn't find that to be the case here. Well recorded, and beautifully played by The Fred Sherry String Quartet I found it a very pleasing and satisfying listen. Yes it required concentration but repaid that with pleasure. The Transfigured Night was glorious. The reviews title says it all.

The Transfigured night is a classic. I got the CD for the first quartet. It is the same idiom as Transfigured Night. Gustav Mahler was a fan and recommended it to Richard Strauss who also liked it. I found it a very charming piece. The Canons were entirely new to me and are nice simple pieces. Do not be put off by the atonal/serialist side of Schoenberg: that was a few years off and he was still firmly in the late romantic mold here. The performance is good.
