Anne-Sophie Mutter
Alban Berg's Violinkonzert
1992

If Austrian Expressionist painter Egon Schiele hooked up with poet (and fellow countryman) Georg Trakl and the two collaborated on a piece of music, it probably would've sounded something like Berg's Violin Concerto. Schiele, Berg, and Trakl all lived in Vienna in the first decade of this century, and all were affected by the Great War. (Trakl killed himself during it.) If you experience their respective works in close proximity to each other, the music, words, and images come together nicely.
