When Othmar Schoeck received a commission for a new orchestral score in 1945, he was typically unenthused. Then his daughter returned from school entranced by Gottfried Keller’s poem Summer Night. Schoeck knew the poem’s shimmering, magical verses and immediately had the inspiration for the most atmospheric orchestral score he’d ever write.
