A Transfigured Night

10 November 2023 | Palais des rencontres de Château Thierry (02)

The project was born after the meeting with Agnès Pyka, the first violin of the ensemble and David Thelim, a painter from Marseille. Both have a common desire to create a dialogue between their arts on the thematic of transfiguration, while reflecting on Transfigured Night by Schoenberg.

This piece, based on the poem by Richard Dehmel, will be completed by the command of a string sextet by composer Graciane Finzi and a quintet in two movements by Alexander Von Zemlinsky.
