Hugo Ticciati and his Sweden-based chamber orchestra O/Modernt present two works reflecting on motherhood, alongside a solo composition written and performed by world-renowned percussionist Evelyn Glennie.
Schoenberg’s wondrous early Verklärte Nacht, based on a poem by Richard Dehmel, wordlessly resolves the crisis of a pregnant woman into a paen to the transformative power of love.
Lera Auerbach’s Dialogues with Stabat Mater enters into dialogue with Pergolesi’s Baroque masterpiece, reimagining it as instrumental reflections on the universal image of the grieving mother.
