CA: “Schoenberg and Hollywood” Concert on May 26

The Villa Aurora presents “Schoenberg and Hollywood” as part of the new series “Vienna in Hollywood,” highlighting the major impact of Austrians on the U.S. film industry from the Golden Age of Hollywood to the present.

Arnold Schoenberg’s connections to Hollywood were vital to his American career, and he left a lasting impact on many American and exile composers who studied and worked with him. Among his American friends in Hollywood were George Gershwin, Alfred Newman, and David Raksin, who all feature prominently in this lecture-concert at the Villa Aurora.

The lecture-concert will feature an introduction by Kenneth Marcus, a presentation by Larry Schoenberg, a performance of Schoenberg’s Phantasy for Violin with Piano Accompaniment, Op. 47 featuring UCLA professors of music, violinist Movses Pogossian and pianist Jocelyn Ho, and a world premiere.

Date and time: 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. May 26, 2018

Location: Villa Aurora, 520 Paseo Miramar, Los Angeles, CA 90272
