Classical Music | A celebration of music inspired by Anton Webern


Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet led by Julian Wachner perform works by  the composers inspired by Anton Webern's music: Ligeti (b.1923-2006), Babbitt (1916-2011) and Lutoslawsk (1913-1994). 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. 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.

The Lives of Tiresias is a new theater piece which explores the competing myths surrounding the blind seer Tiresias.
