The Unfolding of Music II: Disc 1 (2008)

<em>The Unfolding of Music II:</em> Disc 1

Disc I brings together masterworks by four of Western music’s foremost creative minds, beginning at the very summit of the Baroque period with Johann Sebastian Bach’s Fourth Brandenburg Concerto. Nearly 150 years later, Johannes Brahms completed his Opus 40 Horn Trio, a work with deep pathos that captures the quintessence of nineteenth-century Romanticism. Igor Stravinsky’s Three Pieces for String Quartet reflect the maelstrom of the early twentieth-century avant-garde, combining cubism, Russian folk tradition, and other elements under the rubric of the composer’s supreme sophistication. The disc ends with the powerful Elegy: Snow in June for cello and percussion quartet, written by Chinese composer Tan Dun to memorialize the events at Tiananmen Square in 1989.
