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.
