Review in Metro Pulse: Stravinsky and Schoenberg at the Bijou

The Twentieth Century was not particularly kind to many European composers–the stories of Sergei Rachmaninoff, Igor Stravinsky, and Arnold Schoenberg all ended on the shores of America, not with a bang befitting their place in music history, but with a somewhat puzzling whimper. Three works by two of them–Stravinsky and Schoenberg–were offered up for inspection last weekend by Lucas Richman and the Knoxville Symphony Chamber Orchestra. Although nothing close to representative compositions, the three works were, at least, wonderful and eye-opening anecdotes in music history.

My review of that concert appears in this week’s (March 8) Metro Pulse, online here.
