Pianist Jacob Greenberg connects two post-Wagnerian compositional lineages that are usually seen as divergent on this beautiful curated release -- Debussy's intuitively driven harmonic world and the Second Viennese School's rigorously systematic approach to pitch. He asserts that the unifying element lies in the sensuality of this music and his solo performances of music by Debussy, Berg, and Webern, along with a deeply moving performance Schoenberg's hidden gem of a song cycle "The Book of Hanging Gardens" with soprano Tony Arnold testify to his sensitivity to the textural richness that connects these aesthetic schools, despite their philosophical differences. Pianist Jacob Greenberg’s work as a soloist and chamber musician has earned worldwide acclaim. He is a longtime member of the International Contemporary Ensemble, with whom he has performed throughout the Americas and Europe. Hailed by the New York Ties as “a bold, powerful interpreter,” soprano Tony Arnold is internationally acclaimed as a leading proponent of contemporary music in concert and recording, having premiered hundreds of works by established and emerging composers. As the soprano of the International Contemporary Ensemble, she is a catalyst for dozens of groundbreaking projects.
