Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Der ferne Klang’s central character is an ambitious young dramatist, Fritz, who pursues his creative ambitions and his search for Der ferne Klang (‘the distant sound’) at the expense of his love for Grete, whom he abandons and who turns to prostitution. Schreker scores with chamber-like delicacy and has a Puccini-like finesse in the handling of colour, and great imagination in his handling of colour, and great imagination in his handling of harmonic resource. And like Puccini, he was also aware of developments in French music. The skill with which he handles the orchestras in the pit and on the stage in the Venetian scene is impressive and obviously influenced Berg in Wozzeck. The scores is quite gripping, its sound world at times astringent
