    About

    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. 2 was composed during his Prague period and is modern as well as sophisticated in it‘s tonal language. It will be presented in direct confrontation with famous other works of the genre. Zemlinsky's String Quartet No. 2 is heard alongside the second String quartet by Arnold Schoenberg, to whom Zemlinsky dedicated his piece. In opposite to Zemlinsky Schoenberg, quite uncharacteristically, integrates a soprano on two wonderful texts by Stefan George.

    Programme: 

    Alexander Zemlinsky: String quartet No. 2, op. 15

    Arnold Schönberg: String quartet No. 2, op. 10
