Work introduction

The instrumentation is exactly the same as Schönberg’s Chamber Symphony No. 1 (without contrabassoon). This means that the two works can be ideally combined. The original – Zemlinsky’s String Quartet No. 2, used as a starting point by Richard Dünser – is dedicated to Schönberg and contains allusions to the famous fourths in Schönberg’s Chamber Symphony No. 1. Stylistically speaking, it is not infrequently influenced by early Schönberg and late Mahler, but – needless to say – it is for the most part vintage Zemlinsky. It is possible to perform this work not only as a version for 14 solo instruments but also with string sections, i.e. with a large chamber orchestra or a small orchestra.
