Notes & Reviews:

Alexander von Zemlinsky's best known work, the seductive 'Lyric Symphony', inspired Alban Berg, who quoted its third movement in his own 'Lyric Suite', three movements of which Berg himself arranged for string orchestra. Described by Theodor Adorno as "a latent opera", Berg's masterpiece was publicly dedicated to Zemlinsky but carried a secret programme: his illicit love for Hanna Fuchs-Robettin. Zemlinsky's richly scored symphony, a late-Romantic song cycle by any other name, recalls both Mahler's 'Song of the Earth' (NXS 8550933) and Schoenberg's 'Gurre-Lieder' (NXS 8557518).
