For centuries, Vienna stood as the cultural epicenter of Europe, a rich melting pot of music, art, and literature, and a city that always seemed to have one foot firmly planted in tradition, with the other looking steadfast into the future. This program traces the evolution of musical expression in the "city of dreams" through the works of three of its greatest vioices...Mozart, Schoenberg, and Brahms. The program includes Mozart's String Quintet in C Minor, Schoenberg's Verklarte Nacht (Transfigured Night), and Brahms's String Sextet No. 1.
