From the City of Music comes chamber works steeped in great tradition, led by Vienna’s own star cellist Tamás Varga. Erich Korngold’s lush String Sextet nods to fellow Austrians Mahler and Strauss while foreshadowing his future as the father of Hollywood film music. Franz Joseph Haydn infuses sophistication and spontaneity in his trio for flute, cello and piano. After moving to the U.S., Vienna-born Arnold Schoenberg wistfully recalls music where tonality and rhythmic stability were paramount in his Second Chamber Symphony, one of his only tonal later works.
