NDR Vokalensemble
Klaas Stok, director
Julius Drake, piano

The NDR Vokalensemble presents vocal works by Franz Schubert and Arnold Schönberg in the Elbphilharmonie Grand Hall. Pianist Julius Drake accompanies the ensemble under the direction of Klaas Stok. »I am a conservative. I preserve progress,« Arnold Schönberg is said to have once said. As contradictory as the statement sounds, it is true. In retrospect, the name Arnold Schönberg is often equated with atonality and twelve-tone music – but the composer’s path there led him through the Romantic period. Schönberg sought modern elements in Romanticism, which he was able to transform and continue. He also studied and arranged works by Franz Schubert.
