Alexander Zemlinsky: Lyric Symphony - Franz Schreker: Vorspiel zu einem Drama

Alexander  Zemlinsky  composed  his  Lyric  Symphony,  Op.  18
for soprano, baritone and orchestra during his time as musical
director  of  the  New  German  Theatre  in  Prague,  where  he
had moved in 1911 from Vienna. It was generally regarded
as his equivalent to Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde (C210021)
and is based on texts by Nobel Prize laureate Rabindranath
Tagore  (1861–1941),  a  leading  representative  of  modern
Indian literature.
The  work  is  paired  with  a  work  by  Zemlinsky’s  friend  Frank
Schreker  –  his  phantasmagoric  Prelude  to  a  Drama,  which
is a version of the overture of his opera Die Gezeichneten, a
work typical of his style.
