Description: Everything here was written either during one of the World Wars or during the composer’s forced internal exile as a “half-Jew”. The excellent notes, on how Romanticism impacted Braunfels’ choice of texts, make up partly for the lack of song translations. German texts. Camilla Nylund, Genia Kühmeier, Ricarda Merbeth (sopranos), Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestra; Hansjörg Albrecht.
