Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet led by Julian Wachner perform works by Webern and more. This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Program Webern (1883-1945) 4 Stücke für Violine und Klavier, Op. 7 Webern (1883-1945) 3 Kleine Stücke für Violoncello und Klavier, Op. 11 Webern (1883-1945) Quartet, Op. 22 Webern (1883-1945) Variationen für Klavier, Op. 27 Epstein (b.1959) Oil and Sugar and Wonders of the Invisible World Holliger (1939) Harp Sequenza Rouse (b.1949)  Compline Anton Webern, the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

Grammy Award winning contributing editor for Rolling Stone Anthony DeCurtis (who knew and interviewed Reed extensively) tells the story of Lou Reed’s life in an illuminating tribute to one of the most incendiary artists of our time. DeCurtis tracks Reed's progress through the accounts of those who knew him and through Reed's most revealing testimony, his music, as well as his relationships with such legendary figures as Andy Warhol, David Bowie, and Laurie Anderson. Lou Reed was the lead guitarist, singer and principal songwriter for the rock band the Velvet Underground, with a solo career that spanned five decades. The Velvet Underground achieved little commercial success during their existence, but are now regarded as one of the most influential bands in rock, underground, and alternative music.
