Emerald City Music
Date: Apr 01 - Apr 22, 2021
Eclectic chamber music experiences in the comfort of your own home.
Two people are walking through a bare, cold wood; the moon keeps pace with them and draws their gaze. These romantic lines open Richard Dahmel’s poem, “Verklärte Nacht”, from which Schoenberg – a young composer who recently encountered the love of his life Mathilde – drew inspiration for his rich and luscious string sextet. The work is paired with Strauss’s Sextet from his opera, Capriccio; a romantic curtain-raiser that stands alone as a capstone of the string sextet genre. Offered in partnership with The Chamber Music Society of Palm Beach.
