This is the final concert of our “War of the Romantics” series, which has explored the intense disagreement over the diverging directions of classical music during the 1800s.

Presented as an “aftermath” to those differing approaches to composing music, NEW HORIZONS shows how classical music moved towards the 20th century in ways foreshadowed and even unforeseen by the composers that preceded it.

This intimate concert offers a full palette of evocative piano music framed with the composers’ own words and ideas.

There is no theory. You have only to listen.
Pleasure is the law. I love music passionately.
And because l love it, I try to free it from barren traditions that stifle it.

(CLAUDE DEBUSSY)

My goal: complete liberation from form and symbols, cohesion and logic …
 … they may burn me.
(ARNOLD SCHOENBERG)

I feel like a ghost wandering in a world grown alien.
I cannot cast out the old way of writing
and I cannot acquire the new.

(SERGEI RACHMANINOFF)
