Chamber concert 5 | From the New World

Chamber music plus weeks

Aaron Copland: "Prelude" for piano trio (1924/28)
Paul Hindemith: Sonata for double bass and piano (1949)
Arnold Schönberg: "Ode to Napoleon Buonaparte" Op. 41
Antonín Dvořák: String Quintet in E flat major Op. 97 "American Quintet"

Duration approx. 75 minutes, no interval

Until after 1900, American music was of little value in Europe - America was also convinced of this, so Antonín Dvořák was shipped across the Atlantic to find America's own musical voice. What Dvořák found was rather the homesickness and exuberant mood of the Czech settlement of Spillville (Iowa). Two other European composers, Schoenberg and Hindemith, found protection from Nazi persecution in America.

Only Aaron Copland is represented as an 'American' composer in this programme, and ironically, he composed the yearning "Prelude" while studying with Nadia Boulanger in France.
