Concerts: Haydn/Korngold

Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival presents "Haydn/Korngold" on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. The concert will be held at Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church.

Korngold was hailed as the musical descendant of Brahms. WWII intervened in his trajectory and brought Germanic Romanticism with him to California, shaping film soundtracks for generations to come. Similarly, Haydn exported his Germanic Classicism to London. Both composers exemplify the cultural impact artists make when they cross borders.

Tickets start at $45 and are $10 for students. Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church is located at  2429 Montauk Hwy, Bridgehampton, NY 11932.
