INTERMISSION
Antheil: Violin Sonata No. 2
Korngold: Quintet for piano and strings

 

This richly emotional concert brings together three composers – Erich Wolfgang Korngold and George Antheil, who wrote music for movies, and Antonín Dvořák, whose music has been used extensively on film soundtracks (Driving Miss Daisy, The Departed, etc.). Dvořák’s beloved ‘American’ Quartet reflects his happiness at spending a summer in a Czech community in Iowa. The melodious, full-textured textured Piano Quintet by Korngold maintains the late-Romantic style of Brahms, and Antheil’s compact, playfully aggressive Violin Sonata No. 2 revels in the jazz-tinged side of the ‘roaring twenties.’ The concert also features Samuel Barber’s gorgeous setting of Dover Beach, Matthew Arnold’s celebrated love poem.
