The story of Pelléas et Mélisande has inspired many wonderful works of music throughout history. None more so than the fabulous opera by Debussy and the incredible tone poem of Schoenberg. However, the incidental music by Faure and Sibelius on the legend, are representatives of the highest achievements and most successful works by both of these composers. Coupled with the invigorating work by Schreker, the beauty of Mozart and the amazing quartet of Szymanowski, this concert promises to be a wonderful start to a busy year for Ensemble Q.
