The new CD features four works by Arnold Schoenberg and Anton Webern. The program starts with an early work by Arnold Schoenberg - Ein Stelldichein (1905) and concludes with another early work by Schoenberg - Chamber Symphony No.1 (1906) in the arrangement of Anton Webern. In addition, the new CD includes a world premier recording of the Trio for violin, viola and cello, op.20 (1926/27) by Anton Webern and String Trio, op.45 (1946), a later work by Schoenberg.


All works have been recorded in Germany by members of ensemble recherche of Freiburg, Germany, one of the most distinguished ensembles for contemporary music. This new production includes a CD and a bilingual booklet (English and Hebrew) featuring an introductory essay by Dr. Yuval Shaked and a short presentation of ensemble recherche.
