Verklarte Nacht (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned to our store.)
Inspired by Richard Dehmel's poem Verkl rte Nacht (Transfigured Night), this 1899 work for string sextet is very much in the late-Romantic tradition. Schoenberg deftly translates the poem's pathos into a monumental work of chamber music.
The work is reproduced here from an authoritative edition, complete with bar-numbered movements for easy reference. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable miniature-score edition includes the original poem and a translation.
