Excerpt from Sarah Rothenberg's In the Garden of Dreams, an original staged work interweaving music, text and imagery of fin-de-siècle Vienna that draws on Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams, Max Kinger's Brahms-Fantasy, Strindberg's A Dream Play, Johannes Brahms's lieder and last piano pieces, the art work of Gustav Klimt and Arnold Schoenberg's The Book of the Hanging Gardens.
In this excerpt from the world premiere at Houston's Wortham Center, mezzo-soprano Charlotte Hellekant and pianist/director Sarah Rothenberg perform Mvts IX, X, XI from Schoenberg's The Book of the Hanging Gardens, Op. 15
