Have you ever listened to Radio 3’s Discovering Music? One nice touch on the web page is the expression, “over a year left to listen.” Anyway, there is to be a recording made in Glasgow’s City Halls on at 18:15 on Wednesday 30 May. The title of the event is, The Second Viennese School: Introductory Talk.
This will be followed by a concert featuring:
Schubert (orch. Webern) Six German Dances
Schoenberg Violin Concerto
Berg 3 pieces from the Lyric Suite
Schoenberg 5 orchestral pieces (2nd version of 1949)
Ilya Gringolts violin
Ilan Volkov conductor
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
These works, still considered by many to be new music, are around 100 years old (with the obvious exception of the original Schubert…)
Entry to both events is free but tickets are limited to 4 per individual.
There is another free concert the following evening.
A few tasters
