Alexander Zemlinsky composed his “Lyrische Sinfonie” (“Lyrical Symphony”) in 1922, modelling it on Gustav Mahler’s “Lied von der Erde” (“Song of the Earth”). Along with his operas, it is Zemlinsky’s most important work. This new recording presents a star cast: Christoph Eschenbach conducts the Orchestre de Paris, Christine Schäfer and Matthias Goerne are the soloists – four very special Capriccio debuts.

Outstanding and flamboyant. Simply delightful!? Frankfurter Rundschau   
 

                        Fanfare - ’Want List’

"...contender for a “best” recording is one of the finest recordings ever received of Alexander Zemlinsky’s Lyric Symphony, easily the most frequently recorded of any of his compositions, and still a much more important work than it is commonly given credit.

What makes this rendition special is that it achieves a chamber-music-like clarity without sacrificing the late-Romantic bigness of the score..."

                   Fanfare - ’Want List’

"...[Zemlinsky’s] luminous performance of Zemlinsky’s Lyric Symphony is a revelation. Zemlinsky’s attempt to merge symphony and song is, in a way, similar to and perhaps, to a certain extent…Eschenbach makes the Orchestre de Paris sound like a world-class ensemble, and he is aided immeasurably by the impeccable vocalism of Matthias Goerne and Christine Schäfer..."
