20th century, yet no avant-garde. Although Bernstein’s Candide was inspired by Voltaire's 18th-century satire, its music is undeniably 20th century American. The material of the “The Red Violin” violin concerto relies on the soundtrack of the eponymous movie. Dohnányi’s Symphony No. 2 was penned in the turbulent days when the composer was leaving Hungary under Nazi occupation fleeing from the Soviet army. Even though the work invokes some great Romantic pieces in many respects and even recalls Bach's music in some parts, its message is uniquely different.
