Hermine Haselböck‘s both Solo CDs received Awards: For “Songs by Zemlinsky” (Bridge Records) she won the Pasticcio Prize of Austrian Classic Radio Ö1 2004 and the International Alexander Zemlinsky Prize 2005, presented to her at a concert in the Musikverein, Vienna. For her CD with „Mahler Kindertotenlieder, Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen and Rückertlieder“ (also at Label Bridge Records) she got the Supersonic Award of the Journal Pizzicato.

On the occasion of her performance of Zemlinsky’s songs, the music critic points out “…her comfortably warm voice and her sensitive recitation fits perfect to Maeterlinck’s mysterious charged texts and Zemlinsky’s over-minded sound language…”
