Vienna Young Philharmonic Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night)
Works by Mozart, Schönberg and Canteloube

Schönberg’s most famous work, “Verklärte Nacht” (Transfigured Night) describes a couple’s mysterious nocturnal walk. We meet an entirely different couple during the performance of Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante, in the shape of the Vienna Philharmonic’s Heinrich Koll and his daughter Alexandra. Each on their respective instruments — viola and violin — they punctuate the performance with joyous, life-affirming musical exclamation marks, just as the composer intended. And the magical mood stays with us, as Stephanie Houtzeel performs Canteloube’s delicate orchestra songs from the Auvergne.
