Eike Feß: Schönberg und Berg: ein fotografischer Streifzug

Arnold SCHÖNBERG Streichquartett d-Moll Nr. 1 op. 7
Alban BERG Streichquartett op. 3

Das Streichquartett gilt als eine der anspruchsvollsten Gattungen der klassisch-romantischen Musiktradition.
Der gerade 25jährige Alban Berg leistete mit seinem op. 3 einen gewichtigen Beitrag. In der konsequenten
motivischen Verarbeitung offenbart er sich als Schüler Arnold Schönbergs, dessen Opus 7 zu den
anspruchsvollsten Streichquartetten überhaupt gehört. Die enge Beziehung beider zueinander wird in
einem fotografischen Streifzug lebendig, der in Ergänzung der Ausstellung „Arnold Schönberg im Fokus“
ungewöhnliche Einblicke in Leben und Werk zweier Protagonisten der Wiener Schule erlaubt.

The Chiltern Camerata performs music by Brahms and Stravinsky

The players of the Chiltern Camerata follow up the exceptional success of the first concert of their current season when they return on Saturday, 25 February to All Saints' Parish Church, High Wycombe, in a performance of choral and orchestral music by Brahms and Stravinsky

They will be performing the Brahms German Requiem, in which the orchestra will be joined by soloists and singers from the Camerata Consort of singers. This large-scale work for chorus, orchestra, a soprano and a baritone soloist was composed between 1865 and 1868. A German Requiem is not primarily a Mass for the dead. Instead, it is intended as comfort for those who mourn and who feel the pain of the death of others. Brahms had just experienced such loss extremely personally: his mother had died that very same year.

Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite for orchestra in 8 short movements was composed in 1922 and is derived from the ballet of that name. It was the gateway to Stravinsky's second phase as a composer, the neoclassical, in which the composer looked back to the past in this charming, witty, disarmingly simple music influenced by eighteenth-century music.

The performance will be directed by Sam Laughton.
