Salastina Society Presents Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht
A highly harmonic composition for string sextet, Verklärte Nacht is one of avant-garde composer Arnold Schoenberg's earliest and most important creatiions. Join Salastina Music Society co-artistic directors Kevin Kumar and Maia Jasper for an in-depth examination of this transcendent work in a program called Masterpiece Discovery. Verklärte Nacht draws from Richard Dehmel's poem where a man and woman walk together through a forest at night. The woman confesses to him that she is carrying the child of another man. Program notes are set to be communicated from the stage to give you a deeper appreciation of the music. For this performance, Kumar and Jasper will be joined by LA Chamber Orchestra principal cellist Andrew Shulman, UCSB cello professor Jacob Braun, and Pacific Symphony violists Meredith Crawford and Luke Maurer. The concert will open with Bach's "St. Anne" Prelude.
