This Chandos recording is glorious… once again the playing of the great Czech orchestra is stupendous… (Fanfare)
“The main works are an early Symphony developing the Brahms/Dvořák tradition… and a much later Sinfonietta in Zemlinsky's spikier Expressionist-Romantic idiom. The unique sound of the Czech Philharmonic proves ideal for this music… the Czech recording team captures its performances with all the richness the Prague Rudolfinum has to offer.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2004 ****
Zemlinsky - Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2
Zemlinsky wrote his two completed symphonies very early in his career (an earlier Symphony in E minor survives incomplete), and was only 28 by the time he had composed them. However, through the influences of Brahms, Wagner and Dvorák a unique late Romantic voice can already be heard, paving the way for his later operatic successes. A fascinating insight into rare repertoire, and the early development of one of the great neglected composers of the 20th century.
