Vienna has been a center of music for centuries and this program celebrates two “schools” as they’ve come to be known. The first, represented here by Mozart, gave us the classical ideas of form and structure, melody and harmony. The second Viennese school, represented here by Schoenberg and his students Berg and Webern, took the ideas of the first to their logical extreme, in the process upending notions of traditional tonality. Their music, however, is no less powerful, touching, and beautiful than Mozart’s, and reflects the turbulent times in which they lived.
