Christoph Eschenbach conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra into the remarkable Brahms’ German Requiem which was widely encouraged by composer Robert Schumann,
The evening begins with Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) which is based on a controversial poem by Richard Dehmel telling the story of a woman confessing her infidelity to her lover. The moonlit forest location of this discussion contrives to give Schoenberg a backdrop upon which to base his harmonically rich, late-Romantic style in this work.
