Rob Cowan chooses highlights from the Second Viennese School, including Webern and Berg. Plus the latest in a series of Bach cantatas: Sie werden aus Saba alle kommen, BWV65.

Rob Cowan chooses highlights from the work of the second Viennese School, including Webern's "Im Sommerwind", Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony No. 2, and scenes from Berg's Wozzeck. By contrast, there's the first of a short season of Serenades for Strings, with Josef Suk's Serenade in E flat major, and the week's Bach Cantata, Sie werden aus Saba alle kommen (They will all come forth out of Sheba), BWV 65.
