Ciompi Quartet: Vienna to L.A.

In a concert celebrating composer Arnold Schoenberg’s 150th anniversary, The Ciompi Quartet performs a program of works connected by time and place. Mozart’s Vienna produced Quartets like his K. 589: formally perfect, deeply learned, but with an effortless, grace. Erich Korngold and Arnold Schoenberg, both raised in Vienna, were polar opposites by the mid-1930s when they arrived in Los Angeles: Schoenberg was an avant-garde modernist and a revered figure in the Academy (UCLA); Korngold was a composer of lush romantic scores that were sought after by Hollywood. Both wrote brilliant quartets that gave their Viennese origins a 20th-century incarnation.
