Composer: Arnold Schoenberg
Artists: Gabriella Sborgi (mezzo-soprano), Sextet of the Orchestra da Camera, Alessandro Maria Carnelli (conductor)

This CD presents a fascinating musical illustration of the paths which led to the composition of Verklärte Nacht, Arnold Schoenberg’s masterpiece for string sextet, the late romantic outpouring of a harmonic and melodic language at the end of its development, and at the same time the beginning of a new language.

Alessandro Maria Carnelli, scholar, musicologist, author and musician compiled a number of works which deeply influenced Schoenberg: the 6-part (sextet) Ricercar by J.S. Bach, songs by Brahms and Berg transcribed for voice and string sextet, two unfinished works for string sextet by Zemlinsky (a close friend of Schoenberg), all culminating in the work itself, Verklärte Nacht by Schoenberg.
Performed by mezzo-soprano Gabriella Sborgi and a string sextet formed with the principal players of the Orchestra da Camera di Mantova, conducted by Alessandro Maria Carnelli.
The booklet contains extensive information on the background of this intriguing conceptual album.
