“George Rochberg’s Caprice Variations Reimagined

In 2018 we celebrated the 100th birthdays of both Leonard Bernstein and George Rochberg. While Bernstein’s presence and influence has been front and center, that of Rochberg has perhaps been even more important (though less publicised.) He basically changed the whole nature of American composition in the late twentieth-century; there is literally almost no music of the last 40 years that has not been touched by his compositions. In 1970 he announced with his Caprice Variations for Solo Violin his intention to change everything and with the Third String Quartet closely following succeeded in doing just that! Come hear the music that changed everything.
