About the event

BRAHMS
String Sextet No. 2 in G major, Op. 36

WEBERN
Langsamer Satz

STRAUSS
Metamorphosen, TrV 290 (arr. for String Septet)

The Strings of the Oxford Philharmonic

The string players of the Oxford Philharmonic come together for an evening of impassioned music spanning the close of the Romantic era to the mid-20th century. Brahms's String Sextet features exotic and unusual chord structures and innovative contrasts. This is followed by Webern's charged and emotive Langsamer Satz, inspired by a hiking holiday and rooted in post-Brahmsian tonality. To conclude, a condensed version of Strauss's Metamorphosen, originally scored for 23 strings, and composed during the closing months of the Second World War.

Concert ends at approx 9.20pm.

Tickets: £25.00
