SATURDAY MARCH 13

Inaugural concert


3pm – Grimaldi Forum

SECOND VIENNESE SCHOOL

Becoming pupils of Arnold Schoenberg in 1904, Anton Webern and Alban Berg discovered modernism and cast aside their romantic heritage, setting sail for new horizons. Written just after this meeting, the works in our concert seem to bid farewell to the old world and open the way for the incandescent expressionism of Berg’s very last composition – Lulu.

Anton Webern
Langsamer Satz en mi bémol majeur (version orchestre à cordes)
