Zemlinsky’s The Birthday of the Infanta

Reading time: 1 min. Alexander Zemlinsky


Today marks the 75th anniversary of the death of Alexander Zemlinsky.

Mahler’s famous remark that his “time will come” was echoed by Schönberg’s assessment of Zemlinsky when he said about him in 1949: “I always firmly believed that he was a great composer and I still believe this. It is possible that his time will come sooner than we think”.

A new production of our critical edition of his one-act opera The Birthday of the Infanta will be premièred on 25 March at the Oper Graz.
