Ondine is proud to release these world premiere recordings of two new Zemlinsky arrangements by Richard Dünser (b. 1959) with Lapland Chamber Orchestra conducted by John Storgårds. The works of Austrian composer Alexander Zemlinsky (1871-1942) - much admired by composers such as Mahler, Schoenberg and Berg - have gained more attention during the last decades. He wrote only 27 works with an opus number, but several of them can be considered among 20th century masterpieces. In 2013 composer Richard Dünser (b. 1959), pupil of Francis Burt and Hans Werner Henze, made two new rich arrangements of works by Zemlinsky. Seven Songs of Night and Dream (Sieben Lieder von Nacht und Traum) is an orchestration of songs from opp. 2, 5, 6, 8 and 10 based on the themes of night and dream. In this recording the songs are sung by mezzo-soprano Jenny Carlstedt. Chamber Symphony is a 40-minute orchestration of Zemlinsky's String Quartet No. 2. In this orchestration the limitations of a string quartet is set free by using a larger ensemble. Zemlinsky's String Quartet contains references to the works of his most famous pupil, Arnold Schoenberg.

Even seventy-five years after his death Alexander von Zemlinsky continues to be overshadowed by his pupil, colleague, friend, and brother-in-law Arnold Schönberg, all because he presumably was not so much a member of the avant-garde. Die Seejungfrau (The Mermaid) is an enigmatic and absolutely fabulous work based on the fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen. First rediscovered in the mid-1970s, it has become one of Zemlinskys most popular works.

When it comes to modern music from the 20th-century repertoire to scores on which the ink is barely dry , Het Collectief is one of the finest European ensembles. With their sixth disc for Outhere and their first on the Zig-Zag Territoires label, the ensemble returns to the roots of the modern repertoire, interpreting Weberns Passacaglia and, with soprano Katrien Baert, Bergs Sieben frühe Lieder, Zemlinskys Maeterlinck Gesänge.

Global Unity, a landmark free jazz album, is an insight into what was going on in the European free jazz scene at the height of the movement. A who’s who of German and European free jazz players join the orchestra leader, composer-pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach, whose compositions revolve around loosely organized structures, allowing maximal freedom in conjunction with the musicians’ role as instantaneous composers. The music reflects influences from earlier groundbreaking albums from Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane as well as contemporary European classical music.

Among jazz fans, you can have a lot of fun arguing whether “European Jazz” is a useful counterpoint to the American tradition, an original supplement thereto or “is worth less than American jazz on the market” as it can be read in a Wikipedia forum. There is no doubt that there have been and are gifted musicians this side of the Atlantic, who have molded and formed jazz for decades. They have developed very unique playing styles by merging European music traditions with American influences. To give these pioneers of European jazz a stage was the idea for the series of articles “European Jazz Legends”, which we launched in the magazine Jazz thing in our 100th issue in September 2013. We can now look back on 11 issues.
