CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS
Friday, February 28, 2014 | 7:30 PM
The Academy—a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute in partnership with the New York City Department of Education
Few composers have presented as radically new an idea as Arnold Schoenberg did with his development of the 12-tone method of composition, which was a turning point in 20th-century music. And yet, the forward-thinking composer also created some beautifully lush chamber works, Verklärte Nacht being the most noted and popular. Ensemble ACJW interprets this chamber gem, a testament to the transfiguring power of love, on a program that also includes works by two other acclaimed Austrian composers: Mozart and Georg Friedrich Haas.
This concert is part of Salon Encores. The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
