Familiar works heard anew: Musical metamorphoses

The idea of presenting something existing in a new form has given rise to an exciting variety of connections in the course of music history. Arrangements, quotations, homages and parodies attracted and still attract many composers today. How does a piano quartet by Brahms sound when played by an orchestra, how does Bizet’s opera Carmen sound as a violin fantasy, and how might Schubert’s last symphony sketches be continued? You can hear this in our playlist of musical metamorphoses.
