Vienna Philharmonic Plays Mozart, Bruckner and Staud
Wednesday, February 26, 2014
The Vienna Philharmonic, conducted by Franz-Welser Most, returns to Carnegie Hall as part of the hall's nearly month-long Vienna festival. This program features three works closely associated with that city, starting with Mozart's Symphony No. 28 and ending with Bruckner's Symphony No. 6.
In between comes a recent work: Johannes Maria Staud's On Comparative Meteorology is based on a short story by Polish author Bruno Schulz and consists of six short pieces. It was Premiered by the Ensemble Modern and conductor Pierre Boulez in 2010.
Mozart: Symphony No. 28
Johannes Maria Staud: On Comparative Meteorology
Bruckner: Symphony No. 6
Programming Note: WQXR's Conducting Business looks at the recent revelations around the Vienna Philharmonic's actions during World War II, and at the questions of diversity within the ensemble.
