About

Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts Arnold Schoenberg's Gurre-Lieder live on medici.tv!

The Gurre-Lieder, as well as Verklärte Nacht, lie within the first creative period of the Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg. Far from the atonal language, explored by Schoenberg from 1907 on with his String Quartet No. 2, Op. 10, these lieder for five vocal soloists, narrator, chorus and large orchestra bear witness of the strong influence exerted by Wagner on the Viennese composer. Both the plot, a romance taking place in idealized medieval times, and the sonorities of the orchestra evoke Wagner's Tristan und Isold. The Gurre-Lieder, with their refined orchestration, mark the apotheosis of the post-Romantic period, before the birth of modernity and the creation of new harmonic rules.
