Elevate Ensemble: Transformations

  • SOMArts 934 Brannan Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

Come hear a piece that changed music forever. Arnold Schoenberg’s pivotal Chamber Symphony was one of the first to blur the line between tonality and atonality. It also transformed the concept of the chamber orchestra, proving that a rich symphonic sound could be produced by only 15 instrumentalists.

Elevate is pairing Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony with several other musical firsts, including a newly commissioned chamber symphony from composer-in-residence Julie Barwick, the winning selection from our second annual call for scores, and Stravinsky’s Pastorale. Don’t miss it!

The program includes:

  • Julie Barwick – Chamber Symphony (World Premiere)
  • David Lipten - Tongue and Groove (Second annual call-for-scores winner)
  • Arnold Schoenberg – Chamber Symphony
