Save your dietary cheat day for this extravagance, our glimpse into Schoenberg’s Vienna by way of your gullet. If you’re on the up-and-up with Chicago craft breweries, you’ve read the ink on Illuminated Brew Works. We’ll all be tucking into a custom draft created especially for this event, resurrecting a 1908 Viennese recipe from the same year as Schoenberg’s second quartet...all with the Cliff Dwellers' magnificent downtown and Lake Michigan views as our backdrop.
Arnold Schoenberg – String Quartet No. 2 (featuring world-class soprano Kiera Duffy)
Webern’s – Langsamer Satz
Béla Bartók – String Quartet No. 1
We knew that we'd found our local brewery of choice when we discovered that Illuminated makes a Twin Peaks-themed stout called "The Black Lodge."
