The Night Resounded: Music by Schoenberg and Berg


Following acclaimed recordings of the complete Schoenberg Piano Works on Odradek Records, Pina Napolitano performs a newly commissioned chamber reduction of Schoenberg's Piano Concerto. Having premiered the reduction in Vienna and following performances in Italy, Pina comes to Britain to collaborate with the exciting and innovative Facade Ensemble for the first time. Their programme highlights Schoenberg's lifelong relationship with arrangements. Pina Napolitano’s exceptional interpretations of the music of Schoenberg have been praised in BBC Music Magazine for their  “rare penetration, understanding, grace and elegance”, and her recording of the piano concerto was released last fall on Odradek on the album ELEGY.

Alongside the concerto reduction, The Facade Ensemble will perform Schoenberg's chamber arrangement of his Song of the Wood Dove, from Gurre-Lieder; Berg's 7 Early Songs, and Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony –  a work which went on to be arranged not only by him but also by Berg and Webern!

Schoenberg – Kammersymphonie Op. 9
Berg – 7 Early Songs (arr. Reinbert de Leeuw)
Schoenberg – Song of the Wood Dove, from Gurre-Lieder
Schoenberg – Piano Concerto Op. 42 (reduced orchestration for 14 players by Hugh Collins Rice)

Facade Ensemble with Pina Napolitano (piano), Rosalind Dobson (soprano), Helen Charlston (mezzo), and Benedict Collins Rice (dir.)
