Kandinsky and Schönberg had commenced a lively correspondence in the years immediately before the First World War, when both found a shared vision for expressionist abstraction. Today’s performance focuses on developments that led Kandinsky to the Bauhaus, and Schönberg to complex dodecaphony. Schönberg’s Serenade marks the first attempt by the composer to adapt his serial structure to a larger scale.
