Gardner Conducts GurreliederSouthbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall, SE1 8XX, [Venue Details]
Schoenberg’s tale of love, death and the supernatural, presented by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
‘To the city of Gurre you are commanded! Today, the dead ride forth!’
When Arnold Schoenberg retold the old Danish legend of Gurre Castle, he didn’t just create a Game of Thrones-like musical saga.
Gurrelieder is quite simply one of the most ambitious choral works of all time, written for a colossal orchestra and filled with music of intense emotion and breathtaking beauty.
