The years 1900-1914 were perhaps the most thrilling period in European music history: the cradle of what we now call musical Modernism. This was the time when the great "avant-garde schools" took shape: in Paris, Berlin, Saint Petersburg, and particularly in Vienna. Music branched out into a multitude of aesthetics, styles, and genres, as we can see in in the variety of terms that attempt to describe art in that period: Impressionism, Expressionism, Art Nouveau, Neo-Classicism, Foklorism, Late Romanticism, Symbolism, and others. Our program selection for this album focuses on two works written in Vienna in 1913 - the "summer of the century", as author Florian Illies calls a pivotal year that put an end to the long 19th century and introduced the somber 20th century. The two works are Alban Berg's Four Pieces for Clarinet and Piano op. 5 and Egon Kornauth's Sonata for Clarinet and Piano. 1913 was the year of several "scandalous" premieres: Schoenberg's Gurrelieder, Berg's Altenberglieder, Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, and others that were less scandalous: Debussy's Images pour Orchestre, Max Reger's Isle of the Dead, Sibelius's Luonnotar, de Falla's La vida breve, and Richard Strauss's Festliches Präludium.
