Description

Bach is the thread that runs through this concert programme, opening with Webern’s beautiful arrangement of Bach’s Ricercar, a six-voice fugue from The Musical Offering.

Brahms’s Fourth Symphony sees him draw heavily on his fascination with Bach and the Baroque era. He weaves rhythms, harmonies and variation patterns straight from Bach into a work that is, somehow, entirely Brahmsian in character. And we meet in Schoenberg a composer who loved both Bach and Brahms (he dubbed the latter ‘the Progressive’ in a famous essay); Verklärte Nacht is partly inspired by Brahms, partly by Wagner, and is full of lush and passionate melody.
