So just who exactly is this mysterious Mathilde, whom this magnificent album by the Quatuor Arod is named after? She is a muse and her story is recounted to us through music. The sister of the composer Alexander von Zemlinsky, Mathilde was married to the painter and musician Arnold Schönberg. A whole community of avant-garde artists met each other through them, including Alban Berg, Anton Webern, Heinrich Jalowetz, Karl Horwitz, Erwin Stein and a young 23-year-old painter, Richard Gerstl, who pushes Schönberg towards painting and is taken under his wing.

Everything shifted when Mathilde became Gerstl’s mistress, going back and forth between him and Schönberg, her legitimate husband. The love triangle ended tragically with Gerstl’s suicide: he hanged himself surrounded by his paintings. This unique story of friendship, love and death is bashfully told on this album through Webern’s Langsamer Satz, the Second Quartet by Zemlinsky and the Second Quartet with voices by Schönberg. Composed from poems by Stefan Georg, this last work is dedicated to Mathilde and here is sung by Elsa Dreisig. © François Hudry/Qobuz
