Review By Robert Benson,,December 2010

Oskar Fried (1871–1944) was best known as a conductor although he also was highly regarded as a composer. A major work of his for chorus and orchestra, Das trunkene Lied, was premiered in 1904 with Karl Muck and the Berlin Philharmonic. Shortly after that, Fried wrote a setting for soprano, tenor and orchestra of Richard Dehmel’s poem Verklärte Nacht, which also inspired Arnold Schoenberg’s work of the same name. Fried was a friend of Gustav Mahler, studied all of his symphonies with him, and conducted the Berlin premieres of Symphony No. 6 in 1906 and Symphony No. 8 in 1910. Mahler’s influence can clearly be heard in some of Fried’s music, particularly Die Auswanderer.
