Around the turn of the last century, Vienna was the capital of classical music and a hub for the foremost composers of the Late-Romantic era. Bruckner, the Mahlers, Webern and the Strauss clan all had an association with the city. Conductor Johannes Gustavsson guides us through the music of Vienna with great musical pondus.

The 1873 World Exhibition in Vienna was followed by an economic depression, but the city’s music life continued to flourish. Less than 40 years later, the same city became the scene of one of the most significant events in the history of western music – the collapse of tonality. Composer Anton Webern is represented here by two works, one prior to and one after the demise of tonality.

Vienna was also the city of the glittering operettas. In this concert, we hear the work of renowned operetta composer Johann Strauss which, in the hands of arranger Alban Berg, becomes chamber music with accordion (harmonium in original). The chamber music of Bruckner and Gustav and Alma Mahler is among the most heartfelt music produced during the Romantic era.
