Around Dvořák: Disc 4 (2014)

<em>Around Dvořák:</em> Disc 4

Disc IV portrays the extraordinary richness of the Viennese musical tradition, exploring its different facets across broad aesthetic and historical spectra. Beethoven’s Quintet for Piano and Winds and Hummel’s Opus 74 Septet demonstrate the distinct musical voices of Vienna’s leading pianist-composers and ardent rivals at the turn of the nineteenth century. These bookend music by Anton Webern, a torchbearer for the Viennese tradition into the twentieth century: Webern’s Romantically expressive Two Pieces for Cello and Piano are juxtaposed with his Drei kleine Stücke, representing his ultimate departure from the world of tonality into one of intentional brevity and obsessive extremes of dynamics and sonic gesture.
