ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The sixteenth edition of Music@Menlo LIVE visits seven of Western music’s most flourishing "Creative Capitals"—London, Paris, St. Petersburg, Leipzig, Berlin, Budapest, and Vienna. Each disc explores the music that has emanated from these cultural epicenters, comprising an astonishingly diverse repertoire spanning some three hundred years that together largely forms the canon of Western music. Many of history’s greatest composers have helped to define the spirit of these flagship cities through their music, and in this edition of recordings, Music@Menlo celebrates the many artistic triumphs that have emerged from the fertile ground of these "Creative Capitals."

The final disc of the 2018 edition of Music@Menlo LIVE begins with the unfinished Octet by Mily Balakirev, the leader of the Russian vanguard of composers in St. Petersburg known as the Mighty Handful. Following Anton Arensky’s passionately romantic Opus 35 Cello Quartet, the disc concludes with the hyper-Expressionist Verklärte Nacht—a programmatic work of immense beauty that preceded the twelve-note and serialist techniques established by the iconoclast Arnold Schoenberg, who sought to “ensure the supremacy of German music for the next hundred years” with his compositional developments.
