#Vienna was referred to for a long time as 'the city of music' because many of classical music’s greatest names made their fame (if not always their fortune) in this city.
Beethoven rose to prominence here; Johann Strauss Jr created his great waltzes in this city; Mahler led their orchestra; and – though he wasn’t famous in his day – the beloved composer Franz Schubert crafted his masterpieces here that were to grow in fame long after his departure from this world.
In this concert, you will feel the musical heritage of this great city in the melodies and rhythms brought to life by our musicians. For a special treat, you will have the opportunity to hear Guy Braunstein give a breathtaking solo as he performs Beethoven’s achingly beautiful Romance No.2 for violin and orchestra.
