Description

ABOUT THE CONCERT

You can tell a tree by its fruit, and you can tell the Vienna Philharmonic by its French horns. Of course, those peculiar brass instruments are just one of the special characteristics of the orchestra, which is on one of the most famous in the world. Its most important identifying feature is its ability to maintain a mellow, malleable sound even in the most dramatic passages. In addition, at the helm of the Vienna Philharmonic will be the dean of today’s top conductors, 93-year-old Herbert Blomstedt. For their first joint appearance at the Dvořák Prague Festival, they will be performing Franz Schubert’s “Unfinished Symphony” and the “Romantic Symphony” by Anton Bruckner.  

Both composers are among the icons of Viennese music history, although they were largely ignored in their day. Now, Schubert’s “Unfinished” is one of the most frequently performed works in the whole repertoire, and Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 is a fascinating summary of all of the achievements of German Romanticism. The Vienna Philharmonic long ago adopted the two composers as its own and added their works to its core repertoire.
