About The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center: Extraordinary Imaginations
The early years of the 20th century witnessed the emergence of a remarkable new approach to composition.
In the works of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor—one of the most renowned composers of his time—and Reynaldo Hahn, we hear genius at work. Known primarily as a violin virtuoso, Eugène Ysaÿe created music that is now regarded as pioneering. And in the piano quintet of the Swiss-American Ernest Bloch, we find one of the most skillful, inventive, and riveting examples of the genre ever created.
