Ensemble75 says
We are pleased to announce a new project in conjunction with The Goss-Michael Foundation!

Ensemble75's new concerts at The Goss-Michael Foundation serve as an intersection between contemporary visual art and instrumental and vocal music. Rather than attempting to create a musical analogue of the entirety of a visual artists' oeuvre, these concerts will explore one core aspect of the artist's voice in-depth through a collection of musical works that share a similar theme.

“The New Made Old Again” - June 19th, 2015 - 7:00PM

Visual Art by Alex Prager

Music of Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, and Alban Berg

Alex Prager's photography, though distinctly modern, inspires a sense of nostalgia by selecting subjects who are at once anonymous and familiar, and by lighting them in a way that hearkens back to cinema of a half century ago. Following the juxtaposition of the old and new, the works of the composers most associated with the Second Viennese School (Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, and Alban Berg) each originated from the rich sonorities of late Romanticism and eventually forged ahead into complete control in the form of serialism. However, the works written at the crucial pivot point between tonality and atonality provide a fascinating picture of these avant-garde composers experimenting with new tonal worlds, each with their individual aesthetic illuminating their way into the unknown. These aesthetics, which served as roots from which the fruit of twentieth-century isms blossomed, will be explored through works written pre- and post-tonality.
