Next Sunday the Amici Ensemble have an interesting looking concert of works all transcribed for forces not originally intended by the composer. It’s called, appropriately enough, Transfigured Transcribed. The highlight for me is Verklärte Nacht transcribed for piano trio but there’s also some Berg, some Brahms and some Bartok. The concert is at 3pm at Mazzoleni Hall. More details and tickets.
This weekend also sees the opening of Opera Atelier’s Abduction from the Seraglio and Opera 5’s Poe themed show Requiescat in Pace. If that wasn’t enough, this afternoon the MetHD broadcast is Shostakovich’s The Nose in William Kentridge’s well reviewed production. It’s surely the highlight of this season’s line up and the only one I will be bothering with.
