Concert Program V

The Turbulent Century

The artistic, political, and social explosions that began at the start of the twentieth century presaged one hundred years of turmoil, and composers realized that musical rules were no more. Variety abounded; no musical style dominated, and anyone could become an artist. This eclectic sampling of music from the most changeable era in world history was foreshadowed by Beethoven, whose creativity and artistic independence remained unmatched.

This concert is preceded by a free afternoon Prelude Performance at 2 p.m. by the 2023 International Program artists.
