Rosas (Belgium) - Verklärte Nacht

Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) is based on Schönberg’s late romantic music for strings and a poem by Richard Dehmel about a woman who, one moonlit night, confesses in a wood to the man she loves that she is pregnant with the child of another man. The poem’s scene resonates in the music’s persistent strings, at times heavily loaded with passion, at times subtle as a timid voice, seemingly in unison with its protagonist's ordeal.
