Schoenberg: Friede auf Erden
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9

Schoenberg's Fried auf Erden, the short work that opens this programme, has intriguing parallels to Beethoven's Ninth: It is a choral-orchestral depiction of peace and brotherhood that uses harmonies that were as audacious for the early 20th century as Beethoven's were for the early 19th. Thus, In this programe's pairing, one can hear the transition from Classicism to Romanticism and from the latter to modernism. Both of these choral-orchestral masterpieces enlarged musical possibility.
