About Edinburgh Quartet: Litany and Rapture
Featuring Emma Morwood, Soprano
Alongside their continuing exploration of Beethoven’s Op.18 quartets, the focus of the Edinburgh Quartet’s third instalment to the Exile project is Schoenberg’s String Quartet No.2, featuring soprano voice.
Schoenberg wrote this work at a time of deep personal catastrophe, and features the setting of texts by poet Stefan George, performed with us by Emma Morwood. The first, ‘Litanei’, is a cry of a lost soul. The second, ‘Entrückung’, is about transcendence - the opening words welcoming in a new world.
