McIntosh and Young have put together a wonderful presentation of Viennese composers, most of which from the Second Viennese School. This program ranges from the late 19th century to the early 20th, which shows the change from luscious romantic melodies to brittle modernism. The program also teases out a line from teacher to student. Zemlinsky taught Schoenberg who then taught Webern and Berg. All four composers worked in a dialogue to push music past what was previously thought possible. Come hear some of the most beautiful and interesting music from a time that redefined what music is.
