About the program:
Arnold Schoenberg revered the great composers of the past: Beethoven, Brahms, etc., but most of all Mozart. He believed that Mozart’s aesthetic would always apply in music, regardless of the use of traditional tonality.
So while Schoenberg experimented with and then codified atonality, he was intent on retaining traditional forms and principles, such as clarity, balance and proportion, to name only a few.
Despite the title, Accompaniment to a Film Scene was not composed for a film or scene. It does use Schoenberg’s very adaptable 12-tone system as does his Piano Concerto, which is in four continuous movements.
This program challenges you to hear both Schoenberg and Mozart in new ways.
