The COT presents The Golden Twenties

The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle offers its first in-person concert of the season at the Museum Park Theater. Known for its adventurous and versatile programming, the COT is a dynamic orchestral ensemble of 40+ musicians hailing from all parts of North Carolina led by Artistic Director and Conductor Lorenzo Muti.

Immerse yourself in the musical sounds of Berlin as the COT presents The Golden Twenties.

Emerging from the devastation of war and unaware of what was to come, 1920s Berlin was full of cultural vibrancy and innovation. Music had already had its proverbial hinges blown off by Schoenberg’s expressionism a decade earlier, and homegrown composers such as Kurt Weill and Paul Hindemith needed to find their own voice.

Buying into the concept of “utility music,” Weill composed his Little Threepenny Music to accompany the socially charged words of Bertel Brecht. Filled with jazz and German dance, the resulting work brought opera away from its aristocratic origins and to the masses. Hindemith took a completely different approach and created a good candidate for the first postmodern piece of music. His Kammermusik N.1 is a fusion of jazz, neo-classical Stravinsky, Mahlerian humor, and a popular Berlin foxtrot. Imagine that!
