Arnold Schönberg’s birthday offers an opportunity this year to congratulate an important ambassador of his music. The Arnold Schoenberg Chor, founded in 1972 by Erwin Ortner, is celebrating its 50th anniversary! Besides Schönberg’s folk-song arrangements, and his setting of Psalm 130, the composer’s major choral work “Friede auf Erden” (Peace on Earth) based on a pacifist text by poet Conrad Ferdinand Meyer are on the program for this special event. A reading from Arnold Schönberg's correspondence by the actor Joachim Bißmeier enriches the music of this evening.
