Exile: Litany and Rapture

  • Recital Room at City Halls Candleriggs Glasgow, Scotland, G1 1NP 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.
