Alban Berg: Four Songs, Op. 2, By Yeree Suh And The Soloists Of The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
A melodic song cycle for piano and voice
Lamenting and powerful, the four poems set to song cycle form show the best of Berg’s compositional style. While each song is quite short, they manage to hold a great deal of emotion and stylistic flare. Dying upon Christmas Eve at the age of 50, Alban Berg’s first works are widely thought of as being some of the greatest first works of any composer. These poetic elements are truly captivating!
