Kayleigh Butcher & Christopher Narloch: The Schönberg Project
Kayleigh Butcher & Christopher Narloch: The Schönberg Project
Kayleigh Butcher, mezzo soprano, and Christopher Narloch, pianist, present Schönberg's masterpiece, Das Buch der hängenden Gärten, a 15-movement song cycle (Running Time - roughly 25-30 minutes) depicting a failed love affair between two teenagers in an idyllic garden. Eventually the woman leaves and the garden perishes. Using texts by Schönberg’s friend and poet, Stefan George, this work marked Schönberg's first shift from traditional musical order to 'pantonality'.

To accompany this iconic work, Chris and Kayleigh have commissioned 15 one-minute pieces from American composers all over the country who were inspired by specific movements of Schönberg's masterpiece. The composers included are: Bethany Younge, Evan Williams, Steven Rice, Jessie Marino, David Grant, Jenna Lyle, Brian Penkrot, Alex Temple, Jonathan Sokol, Cara Haxo, Jonathan Hannau, Adrian Montúfar, Elliot Cless, Fredrick Gifford, and Pamela Stein Lynde.
