Information about the programme

The concert opens with Serenade in E-flat major for 13 wind instruments (op. 7), composed by Richard Strauss at the age of 17. This journeyman piece already sparkles with the typical Straussian inflection. His Four Lieder of 1894 (op. 27), sung by Camilla Nylund, are gems of the late-romantic repertoire. Five years later Arnold Schoenberg wrote his string sextet Transfigured Night after a poem by Richard Dehmel. Poised between late romanticism and the burgeoning modern era, this gripping work was arranged for string orchestra in 1917, producing an even more sophisticated interplay of solo and ensemble passages.
