Berg’s early lieder owe their existence largely to the young composer’s great interest in literature; nevertheless it was his friend Hermann Watznauer, who actually inspired him to embark on composing his first lieder around 1900/01.

And Berg enjoyed himself so much that he continued along the same lines until 1903, completing another 30 lieder; even Arnold Schönberg was essentially fascinated by them: "Berg’s earliest compositions, however clumsy they may have been, already reveal two qualities: first, that to him music was a language and that he actually expressed himself in this language; and secondly: abundant warmth of feeling."

If Alban Berg had not chosen a completely different road later on, he would still be recognized as a direct successor of the Romantic lieder tradition today. But his later compositions, such as his orchestral works, his violin concerto, the great lieder cycles for orchestra and trend-setting operas like Wozzeck or Lulu, soon eclipsed these early compositional attempts.

The lieder themselves shall be called upon to testify to their great aesthetic, even poetic merit; and thanks to Hélène Lindqvist and Philipp Vogler, a larger audience is now, for the first time, given an opportunity to study these works.

Recommendation
Wolfgang Mitterer is playing the organ and leaves no tone unturned. The composer beams the traditional instrument straight into the 21st century – feel free to follow suit! 
Vol. III. Young artists, young music. Listen intensely!
 
Pax Questuosa (1982) vividly tells “of the vicarious suffering for peace, which, while broken again and again, remains our only hope.”
