Vivian Fung String Sinfonietta (UK premiere)
Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht (1943 string orchestra version)

Rebecca Tong conductor

John Adams took inspiration from the Minimalist movement to find his own voice in a solid-gold modern classic. Canadian-born composer Vivian Fung’s String Sinfonietta is a lively, dramatic piece, with a first movement loosely based on Balinese Gamelan tradition. Verklärte Nacht, Schoenberg’s seminal late-Romantic masterpiece, concludes this tour de force programme by the strings of the Orchestra.
