Auction of Zemlinsky Manuscripts
(posted 13 Nov 2005)

On 1 December 2005,Sotheby's of London will auction the manuscripts of two hitherto unknown works for cello and piano by Alexander Zemlinsky: Drei Stücke (Humoreske, Lied and Tarantell), dating from January 1891, and the Sonata in A minor, composed in January-March 1894.

Both MSS bear dedications to Friedrich Buxbaum, principal cellist of the Vienna Philharmonic from 1901 to 1938 and for many years cellist of the Rosé Quartet. The manuscripts (which include an autograph cello part of the Sonata) were recently discovered in a private collection in North Wales.
In January 2006, G. Ricordi Verlag, Munich, will publish both works, edited by Antony Beaumont. Buxbaum himself gave the world premiere of the Sonata, with Zemlinsky at the piano, in April 1894. Its UK premiere is to be given by Raphael Wallfisch and John York, probably in the spring of 2006 (tba).
