Proms Plus Intro: Schoenberg's Gurrelieder

Live from the Royal College of Music, London

Presented by Andrew McGregor

Andrew McGregor and musicians of the BBCSO and the BBC Singers discuss Schoenberg's epic cantata Gurrelieder. This enormous work, a medieval love-tragedy, is an early masterpiece in which Schoenberg's late-romantic voluptuous style attains a radiant C-major apotheosis.
