In Arnold Schönberg's case, his genius, his musical expressiveness and his influence on music history to this day are tragically combined with the contempt for his music and personality up to his expulsion into exile from 1933 onwards. The fact that he continues to have a musical impact today is demonstrated by many compositional styles and the examination of his work - in theory and practice - even in today's composition lessons. In the concert with Jazz Institut Berlin, current composition students José Luis Perdigón, Shengteng Zhang and Raimonda Žiūkaitė as well as »Vier Stücke und Vorschläge« by Mathias Spahlinger, you can experience the diversity of this legacy and »the things in between«. Schönberg, who was driven into exile, can also be heard, including an early flute duo written by his student John Cage and Schönberg in his aftermath in American jazz with a piece by Cecil Taylor.

A sound structure inspired by Cecil Taylor will be presented at 7:15 pm before the concert by students of the Jazz Institut Berlin (JIB), Tobija Hudnik and unidad.salgan.

In cooperation with the Crescendo Festival, the Jazz Institute Berlin and the Composition and Conducting Department of the UdK Berlin.
