Edo de Waart, conductor

Bach (orch: Webern)   Ricercare No. 2 from Musical Offering, BWV 1079
Berg   Violin Concerto
Brahms (orch: Schoenberg)   Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25

The Second Viennese masters "recomposed" composing. Anton Webern modernized Bach. Alban Berg dedicated his Violin Concerto "to the memory of an Angel." And when Arnold Schoenberg orchestrated Brahms’s Piano Quartet, he dubbed it "Brahms’s Fifth"—an orchestral powerhouse to rival Pictures at an Exhibition.
