Entranced and inspired by Oscar Wilde’s dark, death-ridden play, Alexander Zemlinsky conjured up his most colourful orchestral canvas in the one-act opera A Florentine Tragedy. Set in 16th-century Florence, the opera tells of jealousy, betrayal and ultimately murder. Conductor Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra provide a rich and lavish backdrop for this gripping tale of passion and revenge, which is followed by Zemlinsky’s haunting, sensuous Six Maeterlinck Songs.
