James Conlon on Alexander Zemlinsky

Reading time: 1 min. Alexander Zemlinsky

“And then, by a lucky accident, I switched on my car radio while driving home. I was so struck by the beauty and opulence of what I heard that I was afraid to turn it off for fear of not learning what the piece was; its loss would have haunted me like the lost chord.”

Currently two productions of Zemlinsky’s one-act opera Der Zwerg are running in Germany: one at the Staatstheater Mainz and one at the Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern.
