Next Great Art Song - Xieyi Zhang's Favourite Art Song

Our next submission is by Xieyi Zhang, a PhD candidate in music theory. Make sure to listen to a very interesting first choice! Submit your Top 3 at

1. Schlafend trägt man mich – Alban Berg
The textual narrative is wonderfully portrayed throughout the music: the use of the 12-tone space as depiction of distance from home is very evocative. It strikes a perfect balance between tonal and post-tonal elements. And I like Fr6 chords.
