“A concert by this great orchestra is always a privilege.” The New York Times
It is not every day that best comes to you, but on March 1 it will. Boasting a 13-year wait list for the subscription concert series at its famed Musikverien in Austria, the Vienna Philharmonic is an unmatched institution at the forefront of the ever-evolving epoch of musical history: Richard Wagner described the orchestra as being one of the most outstanding in the world and Anton Bruckner called it “the most superior musical association.” Richard Strauss summarized these sentiments by saying: “All praise of the Vienna Philharmonic reveals itself as understatement.” Experience the best the world has to offer – the finest strings, the warmest woodwinds, the richest brass; and one transcendent program.
Schubert: Symphony No. 2
Wagner: Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde
Bartók: The Miraculous Mandarin
Generously supported by Sara Miller McCune, Susan & Craig McCaw, Audrey & Timothy Fisher, and Carla & Stephen Hahn.
