Literature and music have always been a source of mutual inspiration. One good example is the poem »Verklärte Nacht« (Transfigured Night) by Richard Dehmel, which composer Arnold Schönberg translated into a congenial score. The musicians of Ludwig play the entire work, then selected musical passages are interspersed with Dehmel’s poem and other relevant texts and sounds. The musicians and the audience are also invited to discuss the role of women in the past and today.
