“Two people walk through the cold, bare woods.” This magical work by Schoenberg was created at two crossroads: the close of the 19th century, and the twilight of the Romantic age. Influenced by the lushness of Wagner, yet imbued with the integrity of Brahms, this beloved sextet bids a nostalgic farewell to the art and thinking of its time. This captivating program juxtaposes music of different eras, nationalities, and styles, all inspired by the enchanting mysteries of the night. Click here for more info (Opens in a new window)
