Gurre-Lieder - Schönberg

1, 2 and 4 February 2024 at Concertgebouw in Amsterdam


Arnold Schoenberg's Gurre-Lieder

Arnold Schoenberg was born 150 years ago. The Concertgebouw Orchestra celebrates this with a special performance of his Gurre-Lieder. The cantata crowns Late Romanticism, but is rarely performed due to its massive scoring. The Concertgebouw Orchestra performed the work twice in 1921, conducted by the composer. Over a century later, the grand and compelling cantata will be heard under the baton of honorary conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra Riccardo Chailly.
