The Night Resounded

Music by Schoenberg and Berg

Sunday 26th February 2017

8:00 pm

Façade Ensemble with Pina Napolitano (piano), Rosalind Dobson (soprano), Helen Charlston (mezzo), and Benedict Collins Rice (dir.)

Following acclaimed recordings of the complete Schoenberg Piano Works on Odradek Records, Pina Napolitano performs a newly commissioned chamber reduction of Schoenberg's Piano Concerto. Having premiered the reduction in Vienna and following performances in Italy, Pina comes to Britain to collaborate with the exciting and innovative Facade Ensemble for the first time. Their programme highlights Schoenberg's lifelong relationship with arrangements. Pina Napolitano’s exceptional interpretations of the music of Schoenberg have been praised in BBC Music Magazine for their “rare penetration, understanding, grace and elegance”, and her recording of the piano concerto with the Liepaja Symphony Orchestra and Atvars Lakstigala was released last fall on Odradek on the album ELEGY.

The concert will also include performances of Schoenberg’s Kammersymphonie Op. 9, Berg’s Seven Early Songs (arr Reinbert de Leeuw) and Schoenberg’s Song of the Wood Dove, from Gurre-Lieder. Napolitano and The Façade Ensemble are joined by soprano Rosalind Dobson and mezzo-soprano Helen Charleston.
