The Cultural Programme


Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective

Tickets from £15 to £30

Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht is an impassioned depiction of a couple whose lives are transfigured as they walk through the night, while Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen (in its string septet version) is a heart-rending reaction against the destruction of European culture and heritage in the Second World War.

Fast-rising star soprano Francesca Chiejina joins for some exquisite music for voice and strings: Zemlinsky conjures shimmering textures in Maiblumen blühten überall, while four of Alma Mahler’s songs are heard here in sumptuous chamber arrangements by Tom Poster.

This is an evening of emotional extremes, of feverish and ecstatic passions; we can’t wait to share the journey with you.
