Overview
Theodore W. Adorno was a German-born sociologist and philosopher and one of the leaders of the Frankfurt school of critical theory, social research and philosophy. He was also an accomplished musicologist and composer. Having studied composition in Vienna, he connected with the Schoenberg Circle. Adorno composed his early works between 1920-1922 while studying in Frankfurt, however his main body of work was created after his encounter with Alban Berg (1925 to 1932).The pianist Artur Schnabel was born in Lipnik, in the Austrian controlled part of Silesia (now Poland). Two years after Artur was born, the family moved to Vienna where he started his musical studies and then his international career as one of the most acclaimed pianists of the late 19th/early 20th century. He continued to produce vast amounts of mostly chamber music during his career.The CD is accompanied by a 60-page bilingual booklet, including the biographies, a presentation of respective works and an introduction to the work of ensemble recherché.
