In what sense Hayden’s two concertos for cello – at least, the two that we know of as his, although he surely wrote more – are the fruit of a “Transfigured Night” is not clear, and isn’t made more so by reading the booklet, although it is very interesting, historically speaking. But on the other hand, of course, Schönberg’s Transfigured Night, still a classic of his tonal and post-Wagnerian works, clearly justifies the title. Hayden’s concertos are played by the magnificent American cellist Alisa Weilerstein, herself a “privileged partner” of Trondheim Soloists who accompany her here (without a conductor) and give us Schönberg’s version for string orchestra. Given that Trondheim is slap bang in the middle of Norway, we can well imagine how the night and the twilight – which lasts most of the day for several months every year – must be full of images of transfigurations to inspire our musicians! And let’s recall briefly how this ensemble, founded in 1988, recorded the Four Seasons with Anne-Sophie Mutter in 1999, a veritable stepping stone to international fame.
