At Lunch One 2016-17

Norwich Cambridge London
09 – 14 Dec 2016


Four pieces for violin and piano, Op.7

Sohrab Uduman (winner of OPUS2016)

"Dann klingt es auf..." (world premiere tour)

Schoenberg arr. Steuermann

Verklarte Nacht



Schoenberg’s first published work, Verklarte Nacht, sees him poised on the brink between Romanticism and atonality, using bold and rich chromatic language to push tonality to its limits. Heard here in Eduard Steuermann’s arrangement for piano trio, this revered work is paired with a brand new piano trio written by Sohrab Uduman, the winner of OPUS2016; Britten Sinfonia’s competition for unpublished composers.
