Today, Franz Schubert is one of Vienna’s favorite sons, but he was ignored by all but a small group of music lovers during his lifetime. His Sixth Symphony received its premiere at a house concert back in 1818; this season, hear it performed at Carnegie Hall by none other than the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Also on the program are Richard Strauss’s madcap musical depiction of an incorrigible trickster and Jörg Widmann’s Lied.
