Exile: Litany and Rapture

  • Queen's Hall 85-89 Clerk Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 9JG United Kingdom (map)

BEETHOVEN String Quartet Op.18 No.6
MOZART Selection of Arias
SCHOENBERG String Quartet No.2

Featuring Emma Morwood.

Alongside our continuing exploration of Beethoven’s Op.18 quartets, the focus of our third instalment to the Exile project is Schoenberg’s String Quartet No.2, featuring soprano voice.

Schoenberg wrote this work at a time of deep personal catastrophy, and features the setting of texts by poet Stefan George, perfomed with us by Emma Morwood. The first, ‘Litanei’, is a cry of a lost soul. The second, ‘Entrückung’, is about transcendence - the opening words welcoming in a new world.

Book tickets online at our Online Box Office or directly from The Queen's Hall.
