Simon Holt's The Yellow Wallpaper tells the story of feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gillman. Experience the story of this woman's obsession with her enclosed surroundings. Accompanied by two 1930s masterpieces: Franz Schmidt's Fourth Symphony and Berg's Violin Concerto. Composed with furious intensity and pre-emptive of Berg's own untimely death, the Concerto is best known as his own requiem.
