"Hear'st thou not the brooklets streaming Where sweet spring her blossom strewed, Where the woodland lakes are dreaming, By the marble icons gleaming In sweet nature's solitude?"

The opening concert in our 2009/10 Cambridge Season is an exploration of the Second Viennese School and its glorious transcriptions for Arnold Schoenberg's Society for Private Musical Performances. All three works are incredible journeys: Debussy's Faune journeys to a dream world of erotic fantasy and sensuality; Mahler's protagonist - perhaps Mahler himself - leaves behind his previous life of happiness to embark on a solitary journey to come to terms with his lost love; and Reger takes us on a journey into nature inspired by the poetry of Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff, to a world not unlike Debussy's Faune, "Rise, O Sun on high! Trembling in the sky, Earth quivering with ecstasy. Boldly from the night The wooded splendour bright Is drawn in dreams still stirring."
