Schoenberg: Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4

8.15 Interval

8.35 Schubert: Piano Quintet in A major, D667, 'Trout'

The Nash Ensemble play a programme of music by composers closely associated with the city of Vienna. The concert opens with Mahler's only chamber work, his Piano Quartet Movement, followed by Schoenberg's emotionally charged 'Transfigured Night'. The second half of the concert features one work: Schubert's ever-popular 'Trout' quintet, a work full of sunny and exuberant charm.
