About This Performance

This concert is supported by Elaine Kligerman

The Society concludes its 34th Season with a sextet of chamber music all-stars who have played or currently play in the Johannes, Mendelssohn, Orion, and St. Lawrence Quartets. At the heart of the program is Schoenberg’s early hyper-Romantic tone poem for strings, Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night), which uses ripe Wagnerian harmonies and shimmering colors to tell a tale of love, betrayal, and forgiveness.
