Palestrina is claimed to have 'saved the arts of counterpoint and polyphony' in the face of a Papal edict that church music must be more traditional and revert to plainsong. Palestrina produces a work that contains all the 'modern' and 'sinful' musical styles the Pope disapproves of.

"Die Sopranistin Ruth Ziesak hat ein Lied-Album veröffentlicht, welches das spannende Dreiecksverhältnis Zemlinsky-Schindler-Mahler thematisiert. Am Klavier hat sie mit Gerold Huber einen Pianisten zur Seite, der sich - vor allem durch seine jahrelange Zusammenarbeit mit Christian Gerhaher - zu einem der besten Begleiter im Liedfach entwickelt hat" (wdr3.de). "Diese Lieder sind gut! O Gott, was habe ich getan!"- nachdem Gustav Mahler ein paar Stunden bei Sigmund Freud auf der Couch verbracht hatte, nahm seine Ehe zu Alma Mahler eine überraschende Wendung. Nach jahrelangem Kompositionsverbot .... konnte er ihr musikalisches Talent anerkennen und ihre Lieder schätzen. .... Auf einer bemerkenswerten CD-Neuerscheinung erklingen nun neben ausgewählten Liedern von Gustav Mahler und Alexander Zemlinsky auch Lieder von Alma Mahler-Werfel, deren Tonsprache an frühe Lieder Alban Bergs erinnert. Die Sopranistin Ruth Ziesak singt mit innig-entrücktem Schmelz, Gerold Huber spielt mit weich-empfindsamem Klang. Diese zwei Musiker von Weltformat machen die Lieder als klingende Beziehungs- und Musikgeschichte zu einem Hörerlebnis!" (crescendo.de)
