Commemorating the one hundredth anniversary of the First World War, this stirring and deeply moving program of war-related songs by English, American, French and Russian composers communicates every emotion that armed conflict can evoke.

The 2014 TSM Festival celebrates the music of the early 20th century. A fascinating period of wildly diverging artistic currents – from the late romanticism of Strauss, Rachmaninoff, and Vaughan-Williams to the iconoclasm of Prokofiev and Bartók or the raucous modernism of Schoenberg. The 20th century also marked the ascension of popular music fueled by the emergence of a recording industry and new mediums for distribution – radio and phonograph. I invite you to join us as we host a stellar lineup of world-renowned artists to explore the many facets of music of the Modern Age.
