...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Arnold Schönberg, one of the most influential composers, musical educators and thinkers of the 20th century, was born 150 years ago in 1874. The Weiner Ensemble, dedicated to modern and contemporary music, was founded ten years ago, in 2014, based on the instrumentation (“Pierrot ensemble”) of Schoenberg’s song cycle Pierrot lunaire. This epochal piece not only set compositional thinking in Western music on a new trajectory, it also had a liberating impact on the development of vocal music, and is often performed by actors, violinists and jazz singers such as Júlia Karosi. The Weiner Ensemble has recently played a number of new works, transcriptions and originals written especially for them. In Solti Hall, Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony No. 2 will be performed in a contemporary transcription by Máté Balogh, who is also considered the ensemble’s “house composer”.
