Soundings: New Music at the Nasher

Two string quartets with soprano form the cornerstone of this Soundings program. Features music from Yellow Barn: Brett Dean's String Quartet No.2 ("And once I played Ophelia") and Arnold Schoenberg's Second String Quartet.

Apart from the superficial pairing of two like ensembles, these are works that both wrestle with the most difficult of human circumstance: betrayal, madness, and suicide. Brett Dean's examination of the plight of Shakespeare¹s Ophelia and Schoenberg¹s expression of his own very painful biography in the composition of his 2nd string quartet introduce the elements of objectivity and subjectivity in how we create and experience art.

Tickets required.
