Turning Points: Scottish Ensemble

Members of the Scottish Ensemble in a concert exploring the twilight of tonality. Strauss: Preslue (Capriccio); Metamorphosen for string septet. Webern: Langsamer Satz.

The Scottish Ensemble explores the twilight of tonality in today's lunchtime concert, the last in this series of musical turning points recorded at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2013.

Strauss's richly melodic Prelude to Capriccio for string sextet is paired with yet more complex counterpoint in the Septet version of his Metamorphosen study for strings. The recital ends with an early tonal work from Anton Webern, his 1905 slow movement for string quartet - Langsamer Satz.

Strauss: Prelude (Capriccio) for string sextet
Strauss: Metamorphosen for string septet
Webern: Langsamer Satz for string quartet
