We close our 15th anniversary season with a program celebrating the architects of modernism – three great innovators who were born into the Romantic tradition and revolutionized it during their lifetimes, giving generations of composers the sounds, the tools, and the inspiration for the future.

A great teacher inspires his students to embrace their true selves. Schoenberg made a tremendous impact on American music, working with more than a thousand young musicians here. He called himself “a pupil of Mozart” and instilled in his students the value of classical technique and tradition, giving them the tools to cultivate their own unique voices.

The master of brevity, Webern could invest a single gesture with a world of expression, and Dvořák translated fleeting thoughts and the spirit of folk music into his beloved “Dumky” trio. They say good things come in small packages, and this program proves it with miniatures that make maximum impact.

Love stories are universal subjects for artists – even the ones that don't end happily ever after! Thea Musgrave creates a portrait of the classic Commedia dell’Arte love triangle, and Brahms felt so much guilt after a botched affair that he wove her name into his rapturous G Major sextet, writing afterward: “I have freed myself from my last love.”

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” 
– Pablo Picasso

From Charles Ives’ vivid memories of his youth to Oliver Knussen’s “reflections of an unwilling grownup” and works by two of history’s greatest child prodigies, we celebrate the freedom of childhood and the limitless possibilities of unfettered imagination.

with guest artist Ilana Davidson, soprano

The young Arnold Schoenberg came of age during the twilight of Romanticism. In his earliest work he sought to combine the lush harmonies of Wagner with the masterful craftsmanship of Brahms, beginning a lifelong journey to create, in the words of his student Leon Kirchner, “a personal cosmos, a verdant world in continuity with tradition.''
