Description: Light entertainment from Zemlinsky and Schoenberg? Yes, really!  Both composers worked at the Carltheater in Vienna around the turn of the century where they rehearsed operettas and wrote instrumentations as well as the songs sung here but the ten-minute “Comedy Overture” by the former is even earlier - from 1894-95 - and no blind listener will ever guess the composer... German texts. Ildikó Raimondi (soprano), Junge Philharmonie Wien; Michael Lessky.
