Inspired by Richard Dehmel's poem "Verklärte Nacht" ("Transfigured Night"), this 1899 work for string sextet is very much in the late-Romantic tradition. Schoenberg deftly translates the poem's pathos into a monumental work of chamber music.
The work is reproduced here from an authoritative edition, complete with bar-numbered movements for easy reference. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable miniature-score edition includes the original poem and a translation.
