Format: Audio CD
Alexander von Zemlinsky (1871-1942 - he dropped the "von" after Austria became a republic in 1919) composed in all genres from string quartet to opera. James Conlon, an American active in Europe, has taken up Zemlinsky's cause in the manner of a true champion and, with the cooperation of EMI, has issued an ambitious tournée of the not-quite-forgotten composer's music. At the heart of Zemlinsky's choral-orchestral oeuvre are the three Psalms included in the program of the present disc. Zemlinsky's religious background shows many strains: Of Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim extraction, he converted to Protestantism early in the century. The Psalms (Nos. 13 [1935], 23 [1910],and 83 [1901]) belong to both the Christian and the Jewish traditions and so link those two aspects of Zemlinsky's familial milieu; they represent the early, middle, and late periods of his activity. Listeners will note how, in the sequence (83, 23, 13), Zemlinsky's "voice" becomes more distinct. Psalm 83 still works within the Brahmsian ethos and compares with works like "Das Schicksal Lied" or the individual movements of "Ein Deutsches Requiem." "Do not keep silence in this manner, and do not be still, O God, do not hold your peace," the chorus laments to a lugubrious, minor-key melody in slow march-rhythm. An instrumental fugue of grand architecture suggests the wrath of God that the Israelites wish upon their enemies. Psalm 23, "The Lord is my shepherd," requires less agitation in the setting. To highlight the pastoral imagery of the verses, Zemlinsky uses Rimsky-Korsakovian "magical instrumentation" - harp, celesta, glockenspiel, and percussion. The opening oboe-solo looks back to the "Scène aux champs" of the "Symphonie fantastique.Read more ›
