Arnold Schönberg: Suite op. 29
Gérard Grisey: Vortex Temporum

Gérard Grisey’s "Vortex Temporum" has already become a classic of 20th-century music a quarter of a century after its creation. A wealth of musical material gradually develops from a harmonic environment based on microintervals, and continues to unfold anew as if in the rhythm of regular breathing. Schönberg’s twelve-tone Suite, op. 29 embodies a completely different character. By incorporating dance movements, the composer was inspired by the popular music of his time.

Event mdw - University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna in cooperation with the Arnold Schönberg Center
