- “Vienna: City of Dreams”: At Carnegie Hall, NYC.
Carnegie Hall’s three-week Vienna festival, wraps up with three concerts by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, with three distinctive conductors on the podium.
March 13 at 8 PM:
- Andris Nelsons, the man who will soon take over the Boston Symphony, conducts an all-orchestral program of music by Brahms (the “Haydn Variations” and the Third Symphony), as well as Haydn’s Symphony No. 90 in C Major.
March 15 at 8 PM:
- Christoph Eschenbach, replacing an ailing Daniele Gatti, leads the ensemble in Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony (No. 8) and Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 in G Major (with the soprano Juliane Banse).
March 16 at 7 PM:
- The final concert is something very special, with Zubin Mehta conducting a program of Viennese music. Zubin Mehta studied in Vienna, and his leadership of this orchestra at this event is certainly a great occasion for him, too. His program includes:
- Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus”
- Korngold’s Violin Concerto
- Strauss waltzes
- Webern’s Six Pieces for Orchestra, Op. 6.
Mehta’s guests are the soprano Diana Damrau, the violinist Gil Shaham, and the New York Choral Artists.
