Othmar Schoeck's Notturno in Vienna

Reading time: 1 min.

Adrian Eröd and the Aron Quartett will play Othmar Schoeck's Notturno on 26 February 2013 at the Musikverein in Vienna. Furthermore, Alexander Zemlinsky’s String Quartet No. 4 and Hugo Wolf’s Italian Serenade will be performed.

In his 45-minute work, the Swiss composer set to music poems of mourning, loneliness and despair by Nikolaus Lenau, as well as a fragment by Gottfried Keller. Schoeck chose the title Notturno for a reason: it matches the dark underlying character of the music, which expresses the pain, the lamentation and the resignation of the narrator in a late-romantic style.
