*****
Every so often, an album of music is released that changes history. Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music on Folkways was one such album. And so was Robert Craft's Complete Music of Anton Webern, released by Columbia Records in 1957. I bought this album when I was a teenager and I was never the same again. Craft, to my mind, was like a musical astronaut--given the honor and burden of being the first person to bring the music of this pioneer to the world at large. Naxos deserves jubilant kudos for restoring this album to circulation. Obviously taken from records, there are some noises I wish the engineers had erased. But that's a small quibble to be able to relive the memory of discovery of Webern's extraordinary music.
