Convergence

St. Mark's Church, Washington DC

Something borrowed, something new: Schubert’s work for the arpeggione—an instrument that enjoyed a brief vogue in the 1820s—shines on the viola, and Ravel’s incorporation of the American blues into his sonata memorializes the musical spirit of the 1920s. Dvořák borrows as well, fusing a Czech folk idiom with 19th-century Romanticism.
