Work introduction

Zemlinsky composed his Trio Op. 3 for clarinet, cello and piano in 1896 at the tender age of 25. It is an early stroke of genius that already gives a clear indication of Zemlinsky’s own voice emerging, even though his debt to Brahms and Mahler is still very much in evidence. In line with Alban Berg’s Chamber Concerto and as a bridge to this, Richard Dünser has now arranged this trio for 15 solo instruments or small orchestra. The Mahler reference in the slow movement is further emphasised by the use of strings and harp. The world premiere will be held in Vienna’s Musikverein in the 2015/16 season.
