    Review in the German magazine Fono Forum, September 2003 Issue (Michael Kube)
    Awarded "Recording of the Month" by MusicWeb UK (Rob Barnett). According to the reviewer, this music is "unambiguously the work of a nature ecstatic. The music is discursively rhapsodic, sunny, bold, soused in melody and eloquent with the voices of nature. An impressionistic South German voice soaked in the quintessence of lyrical expression."

    Excerpt from ASV's website:
    This superb disc of world-premiere recordings showcases the lush Viennese orchestral music of Joseph Marx.
    Hailed on his 70th birthday as "the most prestigious Austrian composer of this era", Marx was a hugely popular composer during his lifetime, but has been unjustly neglected since. Volume 1 in ASV's new series of Marx's Complete Orchestral Music demonstrates why his music was so well-loved, and so deserving of attention now: the heady, picturesque sound-world is truly intoxicating.
    The Nature Trilogy was written during the inter-war years just as Schoenberg's 12-tone technique was emerging, but Marx rejected serialism and pursued a more sensuous style, reminiscent of Richard Strauss's tone-poems and the orchestral colours of Debussy. The result met with great acclaim at the time and is still hugely appealing today.
    The Symphonic Night Music opens in the garden of Eden where shimmering moonlight bathes the scene in a mystical atmosphere. The bewitching Idyll pays homage to Debussy's "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune", while the Spring Music evokes nature reawakening. The combination of these three works forms a highly seductive collection, with passionate yet precise performances from the Bochum Symphony Orchestra under Steven Sloane.

Graef (piano) and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Werner Schmidt-Boelcke, recorded between 1952 and 1954. The information about the name of the sonata (correct: Frühlingssonate), year of origin (correct: 1945) and the key (correct: D major) given in the CD cover sheet and in the booklet are incorrect since the producers obviously thought that Marx had only written one sonata in 1913 in A major.
