Product Description

Product Description

Zemlinsky's one-act opera A Florentine Tragedy is based on an unfinished play by Oscar Wilde. Set in 16th-century Florence, the opera tells of jealousy, betrayal and ultimately murder, and was described as 'a splendid work' by Zemlinsky's pupil and brother-in-law, Arnold Schoenberg.

Zemlinsky's one-act opera A Florentine Tragedy is based on an unfinished play by Oscar Wilde. Set in 16th-century Florence, the opera tells of jealousy, betrayal and ultimately murder, and was described as 'a splendid work' by Zemlinsky's pupil and brother-in-law, Arnold Schoenberg. Both works reference Zemlinsky's unrequited love for Alma Schindler, who eventually chose the international star conductor Mahler as her husband. Zemlinsky never got over this, and when Alma saw A Florentine Tragedy she was furious at what she saw as the depiction of herself, Mahler and her affair with Walter Gropius.

Review of the Florentine Tragedy performance:

'The orchestral playing was faultless, the singing superb. By the end, there was a sense of audience complicity in something monstrous. A very fine achievement.' (The Guardian)

Review

Its definitely worth hearing these haunting songs particularly when clothed in Zemlinsky's ravishing and highly evocative orchestration. Performance ****(*) Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine, Oct'14

Jurowski and the LPO capture both its passion and its restraint well. --Gramophone awards issue, 2014

Format: Audio CD
This has been generally well received by professional critics, and rightly so. But the performance of the Florentine Tragedy isn't nearly as good as that of Chailly on Decca (available if you hunt around a bit): better conductor, better orchestra, better recording quality, better pacing, better soloists, and much greater audibility of the detail of Zemlinsky's often searing orchestral effects. That performance leaves you in no doubt of the greatness of this score.
