Zemlinsky The Mermaid

Vasily Petrenko conductor
Noa Wildschut violin

Once upon a time… Felix Mendelssohn took a boat trip to the Hebrides, and heard the waves singing a timeless song. Max Bruch came to Liverpool – but imagined he was in the Scottish Highlands. And Alexander von Zemlinsky turned from the glitter of imperial Vienna to retell the heart-rending tale of the Little Mermaid, in music that anyone who enjoys Mahler or Strauss will simply love. Vasily Petrenko retells these three magical stories today, and joins the 18-year-old rising star violinist Noa Wildschut in the gloriously tuneful Fantasy that Bruch wrote for us, here in Liverpool, back in 1881!
