B.S.O KOKORO – A Night in Vienna

Briantspuddle Village Hall

2nd March 2019

By the time the romantic period was ending at the turn of the 20th century, classical music was the biggest and most emotional it had ever been, meaning something had to give. Composers began to strip things right back and that included the way that music was composed; no more would they be slaves to harmony and melody like composers such as Haydn and Mozart.

Kokoro explore the three leaders of this new movement, Schonberg, Berg and Webern, as they changed the face of music, including a chamber version of Schonberg’s exquisite tone poem, Verklarte Nacht.

For tickets please phone 01929471002, Adults £10, u18s £7
