Label: Sony Classical
Beginning with the brooding, Romantic passacaglia of Opus 1, this introduction to the complex and "difficult" works of Webern shows that while he commits to the intellectual rigors of 12-tone composition, Webern's inspiration was pure Mahler. Webern's tightly constructed textures are fragile, often elegant, and characteristically ephemeral, especially on "Five Pieces."
