The concert focuses on two major works by Arnold Schönberg – the expressive Five Orchestral Pieces, op. 16 in a version for chamber ensemble, and the late “Ode to Napoleon Buonaparte,” op. 41, a bitterly ironic statement against autocracy and tyranny. In addition to these 20th-century classics, there will also be a new work by Alexandra Karastoyanova-Hermentin as well as Etudes by Polish composer Zdzisław Wysocki, who is celebrating his 80th birthday this year.
