Zemlinsky: A Florentine TragedyHeike Wessels, Sergey Skorokhodov, Albert Dohmen; Zemlinsky: Six Maeterlinck Songs – Petra Lang, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski

Entranced and inspired by Oscar Wilde’s dark, death-ridden play, Alexander Zemlinsky conjured up his most colourful orchestral canvas in the one-act opera A Florentine Tragedy. Set in sixteenth-century Florence, the opera tells of jealousy, betrayal, and, ultimately, murder. Under Vladimir Jurowski the London Philharmonic Orchestra provides a rich and lavish backdrop for this gripping tale of passion and revenge, which is followed by the haunting, sensuous Six Maeterlinck Songs.

 "... stunning disc."

James H North - Fanfare - January/February 2015

"...This recording was made at a performance at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The recorded sound is just as opulent as the music, catching many a detail in wide, spreading beauty. The opera’s three singers are also lovely of voice, with Dohmen sounding a bit like a young George London. It’s a grand affair. But the best is yet to come: Petra Lang’s gorgeously opulent singing of the Maeterlinck songs. She is tremulous (not vocally) with emotion as she interprets the text.."

Charles Parsons - American Record Guide - January/February 2015

                                     **** (Excellent album)

Giuseppe Rossi - Musica magazine (Italy) - February 2015

                     Performance (A Florentine Tragedy) *****  (Maeterlinck Songs) ****                   Recording ****

"...Jurowski demonstrates a masterly control of dramatic pace, ratcheting up the tension slowly but surely so that the final denouement reaches a devastating climax. The LPO proves superbly responsive to Jurowski’s demands... it’s definately worth hearing these haunting songs particularly when clothed in Zemlinsky’s ravishing and highly evocative orchestration."
Erik Levi - BBC Music magazine - October 2014

                      Editor’s Choice

"A masterly account of Zemlinsky’s intense one-act opera ... All three parties to the soomed love triangle are supremely well-sung ... The Maeterlinck songs make a generous bonus, rapturously sung by Petra Lang. Excellent live recordings."  *****

Guy Weatherall - Classical Music magazine - September 2014
