Erwin Ortner, Artistic Director of the Arnold Schoenberg Choir, takes listeners outside the reaches of the Czech lands, through the Austro-Hungarian Empire and beyond to discover the turnof- the-century choral compositions. Along the way, meet Czech composer Josef Suk, son-in-law of Antonín Dvořák, and his contemporary Arnold Schoenberg, son of a Czech immigrant to the Austro-Hungarian capital of Vienna. Learn about the folk roots of works by other Austrian composers, such as Johannes Brahms’s Ländler-inspired Love Song Waltzes or master of counterpoint Johann Nepomuk David’s popular German-language cycle Ten Folksongs.
