This programme epitomizes the variety of approaches to writing chamber works in the twentieth century. The avant-garde techniques that proliferated the post-war decades challenged musicians and listeners alike. Music of the modern age was becoming increasingly philosophical and asking each of us to question its meaning in our own lives. If music is about eliciting emotion, this collection of works has as much variety as an audience could hope for.
