Verklärte Nacht: Poetry and Music Fusion
November 1 @ 20:00 - 21:00FREE ADMISSION
Join us for an enchanting experience as we unite poetry and music in an extraordinary evening of artistic exploration in a unique setting in the A.G. Leventis Gallery.
We will delve into the depths of Richard Dehmel’s timeless poem “Verklärte Nacht – Transfigured Night” and experience its transformation into music by the visionary composer Arnold Schönberg. The journey takes us through the verses of the poem, which paint a vivid portrait of love and the mystical power of the night. The musicians will provide sound examples of how Schönberg skillfully transformed the poem into a mesmerising musical composition. The evening will conclude with a live performance by the talented sextet and through their harmonious interplay you will experience the full emotional depth of this remarkable musicalisation.
