Following acclaimed recordings of the complete Schoenberg Piano Works on Odradek Records, Pina Napolitano performs a newly commissioned chamber reduction of Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto. Having premiered the reduction in Vienna and following performances in Italy, Pina comes to Britain to collaborate with the exciting and innovative Façade Ensemble for the first time.
Their programme highlights Schoenberg’s lifelong relationship with arrangements. Alongside the concerto reduction, the Façade Ensemble performs Schoenberg’s chamber arrangement of his Song of the Wood Dove, from Gurre-Lieder, Berg’s 7 Early Songs, and Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony – a work which went on to be arranged not only by him but also by Berg and Webern!
“Exploring what she terms as Schoenberg’s ‘exasperated Romanticism’ through his solo piano works, Napolitano produces playing of rare penetration, understanding, grace and elegance.”
