In 2016 Gavin Plumley, working with the Brussels-based Quatuor Tana and soprano Julia Sitkovetsky, launched Inside the Score. This new project looks in-depth at musical masterpieces, revealing their inner workings and the stories that inspired them.
The first edition of Inside the Score focussed on Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite, a dramatic work for string quartet and soprano. Gavin’s musically and visually illustrated lecture-recital was first seen at Wigmore Hall on 10 May 2016 and relayed live on the internet.
The second edition of Inside the Score, looking at Schoenberg’s song cycle Pierrot lunaire, will be launched at Wigmore Hall on 5 October 2019. Further details will be announced shortly.
Here is a film of the screening of the first of the Inside the Score events:
