“Unanswered Questions”: Musical Modernism between 1910 and 1920

The decade between 1910 and 1920 saw the First World War and the Russian Revolution. During the same period, dramatic upheavals also occurred in the world of European music: these were the years of the last works of Mahler and Debussy, of free atonality in the Second Viennese School headed by Schoenberg, of the scandalous premiere of Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps and of experimental compositions by outsiders such as Leoš Janáček and Alexander Scriabin. Our playlist presents this exciting repertoire in performances by the Berliner Philharmoniker.
