Download e-book for iPad: Alexander Zemlinsky: A Lyric Symphony by Marc D. Moskovitz

By Marc D. Moskovitz

From Zemlinsky's early good fortune as a composer and well known achievements as a conductor to his eventual descent into obscurity, this new biography locations 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 song and symphonic compositions follows the composer's look for a fairly 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 comprises an Afterword through conductor James Conlon and a whole discography of Zemlinsky recordings.

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