Transfigured Night: Concert and poetry in the exhibition JOAN WITEK

10. July 2021, 17:00 - 18:30


On this special evening, Joan Witek’s painting Transfigured Night (1998) meets the works that inspired it: Richard Dehmel’s poem Verklärte Nacht (1896) and Arnold Schoenberg’s interpretation of it, his op. 4 (1899) in transcription for piano trio (1932).
To set the mood, literary pieces on the colour black and a selection from the six solo suites for violoncello by Johann Sebastian Bach will be presented.
