Transfigured Nights: Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern


Praise for the Ripieno Players:

'The Ripieno Players are the cream of the crop' - OxStu

'It was a joy to be immersed in the performances of the this talented young string ensemble' - Midland Music Reviews

Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht and Berg's Wozzeck Interludes, written either side of the First World War, remain the quintessential musical portraits of the night sky, both questioning the disturbing world that was unearthing (or had unearthed) around them. Webern's Langsamer Satz, a similar music offering to that of Schoenberg's, also questions the state of the world at the turn of the 20th Century: its failure to be transformed into a four-movement String Quartet is emblematic of its negative outlook towards its outside world. In today's increasingly unfamiliar climate, these works are as relevant now as they were then, making a New Commission from Sam Buttler (Water Portraits) aptly complete an atmospheric night in Birmingham Cathedral.
