Schiele


Just over five years ago this album soundtracked my time in Vienna, fitting really as Schiele's pictures were displayed at the Belvedere and his portrait 'De Familie' made me cry. It was a surprise for me too.

The painting is infinitely more moving than any photograph of it, so go and see it if you have the chance.

The music is equally stark and architectural and fitting for today.

Listen: Rachel's - Egon and Wally embrace and say farewell
