A great teacher inspires his students to embrace their true selves. Arnold Schoenberg made a tremendous impact on American music, working with more than a thousand young musicians here. He called himself "a pupil of Mozart" and instilled in his students the value of classical technique and tradition, giving them the tools to cultivate their own unique voices. Chameleon Arts Ensemble pays tribute to this great pedagogue with a program tracing paths between him, his teachers, and his protÃƒÂ©gÃƒÂ©s. The concert features Mozart's Quintet for piano and winds, K. 452, Alexander Zemlinsky's d minor Piano Trio, Schoenberg's astonishing String Trio that captures both the harrowing experience of his heart attack and the peace and tenderness of his recuperation, and works by Schoenberg's students John Cage, Earl Kim, and Lou Harrison.
