Vienna, widely regarded as the capital of western classical music from the mid 18th to the mid 20th centuries is at the center of this program. Mozart spent the last decade of his life living in that city and was heavily influenced by its excellent wind players, resulting in an outpouring of large ensemble music, chamber music, concertos, and symphonic music featuring this family of instruments. He also encouraged his students to arrange original music for winds, which may have prompted the publisher Johann Andre (who purchased many of Mozart’s manuscripts after the composer’s death) to rework his violin sonata K. 378 for clarinet and string trio. Gideon Klein’s String Trio was his last work, completed at the Theresienstadt concentration camp just nine days before he was deported to Auschwitz. Throughout his career, Klein was deeply influenced by the aesthetic of the Second Viennese School, which he combined with elements of folk music from his own Moravian heritage. Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony No. 1, originally scored for fifteen instruments will be performed in the arrangement for five instruments made by his pupil Anton Webern. The work comes at a pivotal point in Schoenberg’s career, as he makes his way from the expressionistic opulence of his early writing, towards atonality and the creation of the twelve-tone system. The program closes with Brahms’ third and final piano trio. Born in Germany, but making his home in Vienna for much of his life, Brahms bridged the First Viennese School of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, and the modernists of the early twentieth century (and was particularly influential on Schoenberg). In this intensely dramatic work, he infuses what is often the most intimate of chamber music genres with nearly symphonic scope and character.
