Classical Pick of the Week: Bah, humbug
Hard to believe that the lyrical Langsamer Satz was a piece written by Anton Webern, member of the Second Viennese School (along with Berg and Schoenberg) and founder of total serialism. This was one of his earlier works, written in a romantic style. You can hear it tonight at the LACMA.
If you're looking for a classical music concert that isn't Christmas themed, LACMA's Sundays Live is here for you. As usual, the concerts are free and start at 6 PM at the Bing Theatre. If you're looking for Christmas shows, check out our list here. The Lyris String Quartet is performing Janacek's String Quartet no. 2, Beethoven's String Quartet no. 11, and Webern's Langsamer Satz. Next Sunday, pianist Daniel Schlossberg performs several solo works by d'Anglebert, Brahms, and Enescu. More info about Sundays Live can be found here.
