The Helsinki Philharmonic, under its chief conductor John Storga°rds, offers a fascinating program of two major orchestral works by Alexander Zemlinsky (1871–1942) in world premiere recordings. 1902’s Die Seejungfrau (Mermaid) is a lush, powerful 3-movement symphonic “fantasy”. Before the work’s premiere in 1905 Zemlinsky had already made radical cuts to it, later withdrawing the score and never mentioning the work in his catalogue; it was not heard again until 1984. This release is the first recording of a new (2013) critical version based on the original score. Written and premiered in Prague in 1935, The Sinfonietta, op. 34 is a fascinating example of Zemlinsky’s late orchestral writing and stylistic evolution. This recording is of a new (2013) version for chamber orchestra by Austrian composer Roland Freisitzer (b. 1973).
