Philharmonic Chamber Music: Of Pilgrims, Lovers and Child Prodigies

A man, a woman and a love that breaks conventions: Richard Dehmel’s poem Verklärte Nacht inspired Arnold Schoenberg to write his same-named string sextet, whose late-Romantic tonal language captures the atmosphere of a particular night and the state of mind of a couple. The work in turn inspired Erich Korngold, who was only 17 years old, to write his expressive string sixtet. We also hear the piece Angelus! Prière aux anges gardiens in an arrangement for string quintet from Franz Liszt’s piano cycle Années de pèlerinage.
