Description: "The bombastic symphony is a student work redolent of Bruckner and Brahms, and like the later Tanzspiel (a collection of dances) comes across as derivative, though effective. More striking are the vocal pieces, ripe and late romantic but showing Schreker's growing harmonic individuality. Listeners here may not want the extended spoken recitations in German, but the Gesänge are prophetic of later music." - Nicholas Kenyon, The Guardian. 2 CDs. Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra; Peter Gülke. Original 19?? Capriccio releases.
