Gavin Plumley launched Inside the Score in 2016. The project looks in-depth at musical masterpieces to reveal their inner workings and the stories that inspired them.
The first edition of Inside the Score focussed on Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite. Gavin’s musically and visually illustrated lecture-recital, given in tandem with a complete performance of the work by the Tana Quartet and soprano Julia Sitkovetsky, was seen at Wigmore Hall on 10 May 2016 and relayed live on the internet.
The second edition of Inside the Score, looking at Arnold Schoenberg’s 1912 melodrama cycle Pierrot Lunaire, took place at Wigmore Hall on 5 October 2019. The lecture-recital and performance, given by the Alban Berg Ensemble Wien and soprano Magdalena Anna Hofmann, was also relayed live on the internet
