GatherNYC presents some of New York City’s finest musicians from the New York Philharmonic with artistic directors cellist Laura Metcalf and guitarist Rupert Boyd to perform a program of works by Antonio Vivaldi and Arnold Schoenberg. Pairing Schoenberg and Vivaldi may seem initially unconventional but between the inspiration behind Schoenberg’s Verklarte Nacht –– a poem of the same name by German poet and writer Richard Dehmel, who was known for writing poetry using many different rhythmic patterns –– and Vivaldi’s penchant for using repetition, clear form, and thematic inspiration in his music, the season’s finale presents two kindred composer spirits separated more by centuries than creative instinct.
