MSO – Transformations

Join the MSO in this program for string orchestra led by Principal Viola Chris Moore.

A lush work by a young Schoenberg and an elegy by Richard Strauss written in his later years are featured in this program for string orchestra led by Principal Viola Chris Moore.

Influenced by Goethe’s poetry, Strauss composed Metamorphosen for 23 solo strings, with each, playing an independent part in a masterful display of counterpoint.

Schoenberg also drew on poetry for his early work Transfigured Night. Based on the poem by Richard Dehmel, Schoenberg’s symphonic realisation for string orchestra tells a story of conflict transfigured into unity.
