In this program we are thrown back and forth between the two famous Viennese Schools; on the one hand, the classical purity and tonal beauty of Mozart and Schubert, and on the other hand, the experimental and expressive work of the twelve-tone masters Webern and Schönberg. These seemingly contrasting styles complement each other beautifully and together form a logical alternation between consonant and dissonant.
