5.0 out of 5 stars Shreker or Schreker......? from Argentina May 13 2010
By Claudio Berrotaran - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful recording, including some obscure pieces as "The wind", which are among the most beautiful of Schreker. The interpretation and the recording are peerless, and the music is pure Schreker: lush, subtle and full of color...The daughter of the composer lived here in Argentina after the war, and wrote a very interesant book about her father.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic production Aug. 11 2013
By JJA Kiefte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Franz Schreker is not a household name, but very slowly more recordings are appearing and justly so. This CD is brimful with delightful late-romantic music, melodious, happily sparkling tunes, brilliantly orchestrated, that never overstay their welcome (the longest piece lasts little over 10 minutes).
The pieces were written not for a formal ballet performance, but for the then new discipline of interpretative dancing (I trust it will not have been along the lines of David Armand). Between 1908 and 1910 Schreker wrote six such pieces of which the five remaining appear here (one was lost).
As far as I can tell, the Swiss orchestra under American conductor John Axelrod plays the music exceptionally well and the recording is very good (wonderfully transparent and sonorous, with the delicate winds and harps being clearly audible while retaining enough bass). The only thing that might be not quite the ticket is the unimaginative cover artwork, but that's one very minor niggle (the cover is different from the one shown here).

1.0 out of 5 stars not the real thing..it stinks! July 1 2007
By dadaloco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am an avid shreker fan, and have been forever, when I saw this I snapped it up....then it hit the turtable and all was lost, this item is nowhere near anything a true Franz shreker devotee would want to have anything to do with... it apparently is some sort of facsimile of something shreker purportedly had something to do with, it sounds like music from an american musical...it is ugly stuff, you will thank me for this warning it is a real misrepresentatition.. and it stinks!
