A masterly account of Zemlinsky’s intense one-act opera after an unfinished play by Oscar Wilde, even more penetrating, more incandescent than Chailly’s. All three parties to the doomed love triangle are supremely well-sung, especially Wotan-du-jour Albert Dohmen, in even better voice than he was for Decca’s studio mics. The Maeterlinck songs make a generous bonus, rapturously sung by Petra lang. Excellent live recordings.
