New PDF release: Alexander Zemlinsky: A Lyric Symphony

By Marc D. Moskovitz

From Zemlinsky's early luck as a composer and widely known achievements as a conductor to his eventual descent into obscurity, this new biography areas Zemlinsky (1871-1942) opposed to the backdrops of Vienna, Prague and Berlin and illuminates his relationships with figures like Johannes Brahms, Alma Schindler, Gustav Mahler and Arnold Schoenberg. Moskovitz's exploration of Zemlinsky's songs, operas, choral works, chamber track and symphonic compositions follows the composer's look for a particularly own sound, revealing an artist stuck up within the tune of his time but unwilling toabandon his nineteenth century roots.
Alexander Zemlinsky: A Lyric Symphony contains an Afterword through conductor James Conlon and an entire discography of Zemlinsky recordings.

MARCD. MOSKOVITZ is valuable cellist of the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus, Ohio and has written for varied tune journals and the New Grove Dictionary of track and Musicians.
