“Expectation” is one of the most successful works by Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg, which he wrote not long before the beginning of World War I in 1914. After 100 years, the creators of the project are bringing back this work and other masterpieces of that time as well as presenting 7 world premieres of multimedia compositions created specially for the “Expectation” project. “Expectation” will end with a series of performances by Austrian media artists in the framework of the Moscow “Museum Night” at the Fabrika Center for Creative Industries.
