The Music

Schoenberg: Chamber Symphony No. 1
Ebullient yet reflective. This groundbreaking work has become an icon for modernism.

Schubert: Symphony No. 3
Charming and concise. Schubert completed this symphony only a few months after his 18th birthday.

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 15
Darkly whimsical. Shostakovich surveys his past musical work as well as his peers’, quoting from Beethoven, Rossini, and Wagner.
