Thanks to composer/pianist Lera Auerbach on FaceBook: published last June!

Looks mighty interesting. Thanks for the info!

Footnote: E. Randol Schoenberg is Arnold’s grandson and Luigi Nono’s nephew. A lawyer specialized in looted art recovery, he helped Maria Altmann regain possession of 5 paintings by Gustav Klimt stolen by the nazis. She later sold them for 327 million $. Randol’s fee for his work is reputed to have been 40% of the paintings’ value, enabling him to devote himself to the kind of work he found most rewarding.

Arnold’s son (Randol’s dad) was named Ronald. You get the drift... ;D

No, the series ends there  :D. His children were Nuria (married to Luigi Nono), Lawrence, Ronald, Georg and Gertrud.

On a FaceBook site there was a mention of Georg Solti never having conducted Gurrelieder.

An article from the Chicago Tribune 30 years ago said that in his "retirement" he planned to conduct this work, along with others he had never conducted by Prokofiev and Nielsen.

I can find not mention of a performance, recorded or not.  Does anyone have information on this?

Just discovered by me, very nice, including the sound.

Recommendations for other recordings of the op 24 serenade appreciated.
