Moskovitz's exploration of Zemlinsky's songs, operas, choral works, chamber song and symphonic compositions follows the composer's look for a notably own sound, revealing an artist stuck up within the tune of his time but unwilling toabandon his nineteenth century roots.
Alexander Zemlinsky: A Lyric Symphony comprises an Afterword via conductor James Conlon and an entire discography of Zemlinsky recordings.
