The First and Second Viennese Schools and their associated cultural environments constitute a fascinating, enigmatic musical terrain of strong mutual relationships. This recording seeks to explore points of tension between the two epochs by contrasting four central compositions – masterpieces which constantly inform our perception of what music is and what music can be. Two canons, mirrored in their own reflection.

Ludwig van Beethoven Sonate Nr. 32 c-moll
Arnold Schönberg Sechs kleine Klavierstücke
Anton Webern Vier Stücke für Geige und Klavier
Alban Berg Sonate für Klavier
