Franz Welser-Möst Leads the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, 3/1-3

The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra returns to Carnegie Hall this March for three performances in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage conducted by Franz Welser-Möst, General Music Director of the Vienna State Opera.

On Friday, March 1 at 8:00 p.m., the orchestra performs Dvo?ák's Symphony No. 7 in D Minor, Op. 70, as well as an operetta overture by Franz Von Suppé and lieder by Richard Strauss featuring tenor Herbert Lippert. The following evening, Saturday, March 2 at 8:00 p.m., the program features Schubert's Symphony No. 6 in C Major, D. 589, as well as Richard Strauss's Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche and Jörg Widmann's Lied. The orchestra concludes the three-concert series on Sunday, March 3 at 2:00 p.m. with music by two composers closely associated with their native country: Berg's Violin Concerto with soloist Frank Peter Zimmermann and Bruckner's expansive Symphony No. 4 in E-flat Major, "Romantic" (1888 Korstvedt edition).

The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra returns next year during the 2013-2014 season as part of Carnegie Hall's citywide festival Vienna: City of Dreams, saluting Vienna's extraordinary artistic legacy. This three-week multi-disciplinary festival features symphonic and operatic masterpieces, chamber music, and lieder, as well as a sampling of new sounds that are emerging from this historic cultural capital. The festival is bookended by seven concerts at Carnegie Hall by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra led by conductors Franz Welser-Möst, Daniele Gatti, Andris Nelsons, and Zubin Mehta. These performances include two operas in concert by the Vienna State Opera, . For more information and updates in the coming months, visit carnegiehall.org/vienna.
