The incredibly beautiful “Transfigured Night” by Arnold Schönberg (arrangement for a string sextet) is one of the most remarkable works of late Romanticism. The uniquely expressive music was inspired by the love poems of the Austrian poet, Richard Dehmel. This one-part, but extensive string piece reflects five sections of the poem, incorporating a vision of a dark forest, a desperate confession, forgiveness, a lovers’ duet, and the glorifying ending – a transfigured night.

The performers are led by the violinist Florian Donderer (who is much loved in Estonia) and who is now working with the “ensemble of his dreams”.
