Erika Baikoff, soprano

This concert is a rare opportunity to hear pivotal works from the mainstays of Expressionism, the Second Viennese School composers of Schönberg, Webern and Berg. The three string quartets of this programme are each in a slightly different style. The hyper-Romantic Webern contrasts with the tonally more adventurous – and later – Berg quartet, which in turn differs substantively from the narrative Schönberg work. This is the only quartet for which Schönberg included soprano, creating yet another different musical texture.

We are excited that the Marmen Quartet is adventurous enough to include these three special works in one programme, as we requested. We are also delighted that soprano Erika Baikoff, who starred in Some Call It Home at Theatre Royal Plymouth, is able to take time from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York to join us for this special concert.

This concert is part of The Arts Institute festival, Expressionism: Emotions Unchained.

Our festival offers a unique integration of pivotal music, visual art, and film of this energetic and vibrant artistic era of unbounded influence. Join us for four extraordinary evenings with world-leading artists.

In addition to this concert, for the fullest experience of the festival, please also consider the opening concert on Saturday 12 March featuring pivotal works of Scriabin and Schönberg, the screening of Metropolis on Monday 14 March, and the talk on Wednesday 16 March featuring the close relationship between Expressionist visual art and music.

Expressionism: Emotions Unchained

Expressionism is one of the most intense and influential movements in art. Its defining characteristic is the artistic interpretation of the emotions that arise from experiencing daily realities, rather than a portrayal of the realities themselves.

Our festival Expressionism: Emotions Unchained offers a unique integration of pivotal music, visual art, and film of this energetic and vibrant artistic era of unbounded influence. You are invited to join us for four extraordinary evenings with world-leading artists.
