Schoenberg Transfigured Night
Shrouded in mystery and steeped in popular culture, Mozart’s Requiem is nothing short of breathtaking. Principal Guest Conductor Nathalie Stutzmann brings this unfinished piece to life with all of the grandeur Mozart intended. Hilary Purrington reflects on relationships in our changing world with the Philadelphia premiere of Words for Departure, a choral work featuring the poetry of Louise Bogan. Also on the program: Arnold Schoenberg’s passionate Transfigured Night.
