John Adams Shaker Loops
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.
This concert will be followed by a live post-concert Zoom Q&A session with musicians, conductors and staff in a sort of ‘post-match analysis’, where you can ask questions and participate. Prices are as follows:
