Alexander Zemlinsky: Anniversary Edition

When Zemlinsky died in 1942, there was no telling if or when his work would be posthumously recognised. Born in 1871, the 20th century’s reception of his music was typical enough, set against the backcloth of two World Wars and Nazi rule. But it remains remarkable just how differently Zemlinsky has been judged over the last 150 years. He had his works premiered at the Vienna Court Opera by Mahler. He commanded the utmost respect of his pupil and brother-in-law Arnold Schoenberg. He was celebrated as the director of Prague’s New German Theatre. And yet, still in his lifetime, his work succumbed to political and stylistic changes; he was persecuted and was forgotten. In a way, we have come full circle: Zemlinsky is once again considered a great composer who doesn't have to shy away from comparison with his famous contemporaries and whose music gets performed at least occasionally. With this special Anniversary Edition, Capriccio pays respect to the wide spectrum of Zemlinsky’s outstanding compositions.
