WORD - IMAGE - SOUND, focusing on the Second Viennese School.
Inspired by the Getty's exhibit on Kathe Kollwitz (1867-1945) etchings, lithography, printing, sculpture, and woodcuts, we will be listening to some of the important representative works of composers who worked during the Weimar Republic. For example, we will examine pieces by Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951), Paul Hindemith (1895-1963), Anton Webern (1883-1945) and others.
Updates will be posted here, so stay tuned
See you all Wednesday, October 21st at 12:30 PM
