Main Info

This concert is part of the Sound Out Leeds 2023/24 series.

Tom Greed – director
With storytelling by George Wigzell

Programme to include: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Alexander Borodin’s Nocturne, Stephen Sondheim’s Send in the Clowns from A Little Night Music, Max Richter’s On the Nature of Daylight, selection from Johannes Brahms’ String Sextet No 1, and Arnold Schoenberg’s Verklarte Nacht reimagined and retold with a newly written narrative to be performed by actor/writer George Wigzell.

Avenue Ensemble returns to Leeds to explore music for strings inspired by the night.

Darkness, night-time, and changing light have inspired art and expression throughout human history, something which many composers have been fascinated with. Avenue Ensemble takes its signature relaxed and interactive performances to a new level in this programme, where the central work – Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) – will be performed with storytelling derived from the original Richard Dehmel poem which inspired Schoenberg’s masterpiece.

Join the six-piece ensemble and Leeds-born actor and writer George Wigzell to bring this beautiful musical story to life.

Please note, there will be themes surrounding mental health discussed at this event.
