Transfigured Romanticism 2024-2025

Embark on a journey through the depths of late Romanticism with two Viennese masters, as Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night and Johanna Müller-Hermann’s richly harmonic compositions ignite passion and rediscovery.

Presenting Season Partner

The two works featured on this program belong to late Romanticism, and their composers, both Viennese, studied under Alexander von Zemlinsky. Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night is a passionately dramatic setting of a poem by Richard Dehmel. Johanna Müller-Hermann, whose works reveal astonishing harmonic and melodic breadth, was widely renowned in her time and is a composer to rediscover.
