Philharmonic chamber music: Dream sequences and harlequinades
Franz Schreker and Arnold Schoenberg were among the musical visionaries of belle époque Vienna. Schreker, as Der Wind shows, remained attached to the sensuous tonal language of the fin de siècle. Schoenberg also made use of this style in his opulent early work Verklärte Nacht. Shortly after, he broke new ground with the avant-garde Pierrot lunaire. All three works captivate the listener with their dreamlike, rapturous atmosphere.
