A passionate dialogue between Leoš Janáček's string quartet and Verklärte Nacht by Arnold Schönberg.
In this chamber music concert passions flare-up. The string quartet Intimate Letters by Leoš Janáček is the Czech composer's ultimate declaration of love to his much younger (and married) muse Kamila Stösslová. In Arnold Schönberg's incomparable string sextet Verklärte Nacht, we immerse ourselves in a turbulent night in which two lovers enter into a painful confrontation before finally reconciling a new path under a starry sky.
