The chamber symphony op.38 # 2 is an orchestral work written in 1939. Schönberg began its composing shortly after the first symphony, but finished it 33 years later. This partition is the witness of a musical turnaround in the late 30’s: the composer have successively explored tonal music and twelve-tone technique.

Schoenberg composed unstable, irresolvable melodies (like Wagner). He also hated sequences and any form of textual "predictability". He was looking for perpetually changing music that had literally never been heard before. Schoenberg sought new harmonic concepts and developed a counterpoint in which all voices were of equal importance. He used the twelve-tone scale to overcome major-minor dualities and forces of tonal attraction, such as the dominant tonic, and piled up fourths instead of the thirds favoured in classical harmony, provoking a polyphonic overload.


DAVID GRIMAL & LES DISSONANCES
The Dissonances, homage to the famous quartet of Mozart, is a collective of artists created by violinist David Grimal. The musical ensemble without conductor, has an absolute liberty of programming choices. This independence offers musicians the opportunity to meet a new audience sometimes intimidated by the so-called classical music and to bring the public a new vision of the major repertoire.
