Arnold SCHÖNBERG u. a. Stück in d-Moll für Violine und Klavier
aus: Brettl-Lieder
Words by Arnold Schönberg

Cheerful works and texts by Arnold Schönberg are the centerpieces of a gala evening being given by the Arnold Schönberg Center at the close of Christian Meyer’s tenure as its director. He and the Schoenberg Family, celebrity friends and companions will all be present and they all invite you to attend. Hermann Beil, Martin Schwab, Gabriele Schuchter and the members of the Merlin Ensemble Wien will be recalling many wonderful evenings which made the Center’s evolvement a vital part of Vienna’s cultural and intellectual topography today. Schönberg’s severity in his work is just as legendary as his jovial partying mood; the theme of this gala evening embraces both of those aspects and further surprises may well be in store.

Wolfgang RIHM Fetzen Nr. 1 – 8 für Akkordeon und Streichquartett
Interview Wolfgang Rihm
Arnold SCHÖNBERG Serenade op. 24; Satzfragment aus der
Serenade op. 24

The Serenade Op. 24 is one of Schönberg’s principal works; it stands for the directly imminent breakthrough to
the epochal “method of composing with 12 tones which are related only with one another.” The new possibilities
which opened up while experimenting with the new techniques seem to have inspired Schönberg to create a
largely cheerful work, often melodious and with a perceptibly dance-like element. Wolfgang Rihm’s eight-part
cycle “Fetzen” provides an appealing contrast; the unusual combination of instruments results in exciting
sonic mixes which Rihm plumbs in his characteristic, expressive musical language.

aron quartett
Elisabeth Leonskaja, Piano

Arnold Schönberg Streichquartett D-Dur; Drei Klavierstucke op. 11; Sechs kleine Klavierstucke op. 19
Antonin Dvořak Klavierquintett Nr. 2 A-Dur op. 81

Schönberg wrote his string quartet “No. Zero” in 1897, at a time when Dvořák was doubtless a model for him. His calling as a composer working in new directions did not become appreciable until years later, with works such as the atonal piano pieces Opp. 11 and 19 (likewise on the program). There is good reason why Dvořák’s 1887 Piano Quintet Op. 81 is one of his most frequently performed works; with its rich melodic invention, lush sound, folk-music touch and its late Romantic pathos, it is an imposing example of the Czech composer’s chamber music. Presenting the compositions is the Vienna aron quartett, prizewinning and admired for its precise, vigorous and equally gentle interpretations of the classical and new string quartet repertoires alike, along with Elisabeth Leonskaja, the doyenne of Viennese piano virtuosos.

Arnold Schönberg Lieder; Sechs kleine Klavierstucke op. 19
Gustav Mahler Lieder
Luigi Nono ... sofferte onde serene ...
Reading out of the correspondence between Alma Mahler und Arnold Schönberg

Schönberg’s correspondence reveals a side of Alma Mahler which is scarcely familiar in a woman often reduced to the role of femme fatale. As a patroness, she campaigned for those she believed in. The well-known actress Sunnyi Melles reads from a selection of letters which recount emotional depth,private and artistic highs and lows and ultimately shared fortune, misfortune and mutual esteem in exile. The world-famous baritone Thomas Hampson evinces his reverence for Schönberg and Mahler in this specially arranged recital. In Johannes Marian, the sensitive accompanist, we also experience an incomparable interpreter of 20th century icons of the piano.

18.00 Uhr Komponistengespräch Salvatore Sciarrino
19:30 Uhr Webern Ensemble Wien
Deborah Polaski, soprano
Jean-Bernard Matter, art director

The focus of this concert is on the Italian autodidact Salvatore Sciarrino (b. 1947). In its inspiring and admirable way, his compositional style is individual and multifaceted: floating, concentrated, contoured, varied, minimalistic, saturated, hypnotic. The composer works with overtones, with sound and Klangfarbe and with silence, his music capturing listeners fully and without compromise. After an introductory talk with Salvatore Sciarrino on his artistic work and his position on Schönberg, the Webern Ensemble Wien and Jean- Bernard Matter perform music by both composers.

Arnold SCHÖNBERG Suite op. 29
Johann Sebastian BACH, Igor STRAWINSKY,
Giovanni Battista PERGOLESI und Jean Féry REBEL

In music, a suite is a sequence of dance-like instrumental pieces played in succession according to given rules. Extremely popular in the Baroque era, we have a great number of excellent works in the genre for our enjoyment today. And it lived on after the Baroque epoch; the suite gave Stravinsky the opportunity to use his compositional style – so accentuated and rhythmically contoured – to bring the traditional form into modern times. Cheeriness and dance-like character also infuse Schönberg’s 1925/26 Suite, despite rigorous adherence to its basic dodecaphonic structure.
