Some of the most fascinating works of art come at a turning point, a pivotal moment in the artist’s development. Strauss’ early sonata foreshadows his heroic voice, and the Chamber Symphony is a major signpost in Schoenberg’s stylistic evolution, pushing tonal harmony to its limit. Beethoven’s coming-out statement represents both the apex of Classical models and the starting point for his high drama to come.
