About this Recording

WEIGL, K.: Isle of the Dead / Fantasies / Pictures and Tales / Night Fantasies (Banowetz)

Karl Weigl was part of the rich cultural life of Vienna at the turn of the last century. One of his earliest works, Isle of the Dead was inspired by Böcklin’s famous symbolic painting and here receives its first known performance. Nachtphantasien (Night Fantasies) relates to the two Nachtmusik movements of Mahler’s Symphony No 7. Folk-like but deceptively demanding, the Pictures and Tales were popular in their day, while Dance of the Furies was overlooked by the composer and not publicly performed until 1970. Weigl’s career was cut short by Hitler’s rise to power. Written in exile in the United States, the reflective Six Fantasies was his last piano cycle.
