Ernst Toch: Cantata of the Bitter Herbs; Jeptha, Rhapsodic Poem

Ernst Toch: Cantata of the Bitter Herbs; Jeptha, Rhapsodic Poem

by Gerard Schwarz
     
 

Both Jephta and Toch come off as Romantic, and the argument is convincing.... Schwarz brings out and warms Toch's harmonics. He also softens edges and broadens textures, while darkening and adding oil to the string sound.... The sound is fine in both works, with Naxos's customary blended acoustic contributing to the effect Schwarz achieves in the Symphony.See more details below
