Berg: Seven Early Songs

Seven Early Songs were written for solo song and piano and were Alban Berg’s debut as a composer in 1907. Critics noted with satisfaction that the peculiar songs unite old and new tradition, as they “despite their absolute freedom” rest on tonal principles. There are traces of Robert Schumann and Debussy here. The songs are about love, summer days and a particularly popular nightingale. In an orchestral version, Seven Early Songs appeared in 1928. During this concert, conductor Simone Young leads the orchestra with soprano Flurina Stucki by her side.
