The later years of the Romantic period witnessed the emergence of a drastically new approach towards composition. Webern’s expressive Langsamer Satz pushes the boundaries of romanticism, while Berg’s String Quartet abandons tonality for a new language of emotion. Songs by Charles Ives and Bela Bartók incorporate folk music, while Elgar’s passionate quintet revels in a nostalgic and melancholy realm.
This performance will take place at Alice Tully Hall. Please click here for more information on the venue.
