Arnold Schoenberg's masterpiece Transfigured Night, is centered between two other seminal works for string sextet. Richard Strauss' gorgeous curtain opener for his final opera Capriccio opens the series.Tchiakovsky's brilliant Souvenir de Florence closes the program with the unbridled passion and Russian folk melodies one expects from the composer of the Nutcracker.

Its 2011/12 season will be presented by Kate Nordstrum Projects, Northrop Concerts & Lectures and The Schubert Club at the National Historic Landmark Christ Church Lutheran, one of the Twin Cities' great architectural treasures designed by the esteemed architect Eliel Saarinen and his son Eero Saarinen.
