Couldn’t this have gone under the composer’s own thread? I mean it’s like you don’t know how to use the ‘Search’ function.

Yes I should have but wanted to make a distinct tread on his music and Wagner music because same ink  for me at least ,if op want move it to Zemlinsky?

I have no objections?

Zemlinsky's String Quartet No.1 is nice, especially the Artis Quartett Wien recording. It really has that "old Vienna" flavor.

I agree dear vers la flamme, Zemlinsky is a great great composer in my book, a super good composer, to be honnest whit you I prefer Zemlinsky to his pupil Arnold Schoenberg his music has epic propportion in my mind.

have a good day  8)

The Artis Quartett are the recordings I own of the SQs and they are superb in every respect. I kept trying to look for the Schoenberg Quartet’s recordings since I loved their Second Viennese School performances, but I couldn’t find them. I’m actually kind of I didn’t as I’m now rather content with what the Artis Quartett bring to the musical table. Have you heard any of the other SQs? They’re all excellent --- the 2nd is the big-boned, Late-Romantic one, but the 3rd sees a change in his style as the writing becomes a bit more edgy and streamlined --- I detect a Schoenberg influence in this particular SQ and then the last one is rather Neoclassical. A winning SQ cycle overall and one that deserves to be better known. Also, do try his Piano Trio, Op. 3 (for clarinet, cello and piano). It’s a just gorgeous and if you haven’t heard any of the lieder (incl. orchesterlieder), orchestral works, Lyrische Symphonie or any of the operas, then do check these out as well. So much great music awaits you!

I agree dear vers la flamme, Zemlinsky is a great great composer in my book...his music has epic proportions...


Which works do you find epic?  Die Seejungfrau, currently buzzing through GMG  0:)  , would be an excellent choice, along with the Lyric Symphony.

"Meet Miss Ruth Sherwood, from Columbus, Ohio, the Middle of the Universe!"

I’d say Eine florentinische Tragödie is quite epic as well.

Zemlinsky composed several one-act operas. Der Zwerg is another one-act opera, but I haven’t heard this one yet. I’ve got the Conlon recording on the way.

I’ll also add that if someone hasn’t heard the Lyrische Symphonie, all of the orchesterlieder and lieder (w/ piano), the SQs or Der Zwerg, then they definitely should rectify this soon!

The Sechs Orchesterlieder with poems by Maurice Maeterlinck is a brilliant work!
