Surveying three early works of Alexander von Zemlinsky
April 30, 2007
Pianist Christopher Hinterhuber, together with cellist Ohtmar Müller and Ernst Ottensamer, principal clarinetist of the Vienna Philharmonic, recently recorded three youthful works by Viennese composer Alexander von Zemlinsky: a recently discovered Sonata for Cello and Piano in A minor (1894), Three pieces for Cello and Piano (1891) and the Trio for Piano, Clarinet and Cello in D minor, Op. 3 (1896).
Recording sessions took place from April 9th to 11th, at the new Liszt Concert Hall in Raiding, Austria and were engineered and produced by Heinz Kohlbauer. The sessions were the first to have taken place at this newly opened hall, which is located in the town of Franz Liszt’s birth.
Both Mr. Hinterhuber and Mr. Ottensamer have previously recorded with Naxos.
