An enchanting concert about the night in music, image and text, together with Poet of The Netherlands Anne Vegter

György Ligeti                  String quartet no.1 ‘Metamorphoses Nocturnes’
Terry Riley                      Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collector
Arnold Schönberg        Sextet op.4 ‘Verklärte Nacht’

Nocturne is a poetic concert by the Ragazze Quartet, together with violist Dana Zemtsov (winner of the Kersjes scholarship 2014), cellist Ketevan Roinishvili (finalist Dutch Classical Talent 2015), light designer Maarten Warmerdam and Poet of The Netherlands Anne Vegter. It will be an asso- ciative concert in music, image and text.

Anne’s words will be interweaved with the music as an extra musical line through several passages. Sometimes it will fit the music perfectly, sometimes they will take their own course. Of course the text will refer to the night, nightly relations and encounters. Because – like in the music of Ligeti, Riley and Schönberg – at night feelings are more complex, richer and more intense than in broad daylight.
