ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a musical concert on Austrian-Czech writer Franz Kafka's novel "The Trial," conducted by Gottfried Von Einem. It is opined that the work fails because von Einern allows the intellectual abstraction, which is his modus operandi to dominate the theatrical and musical realities with which he is dealing. Moreover, von Einem has settled on two devices and maintained them throughout: first, and most noticeably, the recitativo secco, in which all of the singing parts are couched; second, a bright, brilliantly orchestrated major mode accompaniment which acts, not as a supporting agent, but as a detached adjunct.
