    About concert

    For a long time the String quartet was regarded as the royal class of composing. Anyone who considered himself as a real composer wrote quartets. So did Zemlinsky. His String quartet No. 3 was composed during his Prague period and is modern as well as sophisticated in their tonal language. It will be presented in direct confrontation with famous other works of the genre. Zemlinsky’s String quartet No. 3 is heard next to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s famous “Dissonance Quartet”. Zemlinsky was not only a composer and teacher, but also active as conductor. For more than 17 years he was Music director at the State Opera and famous far beyond the city’s borders for his interpretations: especially of the works by Mozart.
