Director – Tom Greed
With storytelling by George Wigzell
Strings At Night
Programme to include:
Schoenberg – Verklärte Nacht and pieces by Mozart, Brahms, Max Richter and Elgar amongst others.
Avenue Ensemble returns to Leeds to explore music for strings inspired by the night.
Darkness, night-time, and changing light have inspired art and expression throughout human history, something many composers have been fascinated with. Avenue Ensemble takes its signature relaxed and interactive performances to a new level in this programme, where the central work – Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) – will be integrated with storytelling derived from the original Richard Dehmel poem which inspired Schoenberg’s masterpiece.
Join the six-piece ensemble and Leeds-born actor and writer George Wigzell to bring this beautiful musical story to life.
