A hundred years ago, Prokofiev, now living in America, was approached by a Russian ensemble about to tour the USA, for a work using klezmer melodies it had collected together. The year before, Poulenc, then a protégé of Satie, wrote a piano work very much in his mentor’s style, rescoring it in 1925… the same year that Schoenberg, unlikely as it may seem, arranged the Emperor Waltz, but with hidden subtexts of his own alluding to Austrian nationalism. In Schubert’s Vienna, on the other hand, it would appear there is not a cloud in the sky as his trout leaps out of the crystal-clear stream trying to evade the wily fisherman. And with a piece like that to close, we hope that you are hooked for another year.
