    From February 21 to March 16, 2014, Carnegie Hall presents Vienna: City of Dreams, a three-week citywide festival featuring more than 90 events at Carnegie Hall and 23 partner cultural organizations throughout New York City, all inviting audiences to discover the extraordinary artistic legacy of Vienna. Concerts featured throughout the festival feature symphonic and operatic masterpieces, chamber music, and lieder, as well as new sounds emerging from this historic cultural capital. In addition to music, Vienna: City of Dreams shines a spotlight on Vienna’s visual art, film, architecture, politics, science, and history, creating an extensive look at a city that for centuries has drawn artists, dreamers, and innovators from all corners of the world to its dazzling intellectual and artistic life.

    In addition to seven concerts at Carnegie Hall by the renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Vienna State Opera, the festival features classical concerts with a variety of Viennese music by esteemed musicians including violinist Leonidas Kavakos and pianist Enrico Pace, baritone Matthias Goerne and pianist Christoph Eschenbach, fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, the Hugo Wolf Quartet, and Ensemble ACJW. Carnegie Hall also presents a Discovery Day on Franz Schubert’s final years led by pianist and keynote speaker Graham Johnson and a series of three free Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concerts at venues throughout New York City. Complementing Carnegie Hall’s presentations, partner cultural organizations throughout New York City will present a number of concerts throughout the festival.

    At Carnegie Hall, frequent collaborators Leonidis Kavakos and Enrico Pace perform the complete Beethoven violin sonata cycle over three consecutive nights in Zankel Hall on Sunday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m., Monday, March 3 at 7:30 p.m., and Tuesday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. On Wednesday, March 5 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, baritone Matthias Goerne performs Schubert’s tragic twenty-song cycle, Die schöne Müllerin, with pianist Christoph Eschenbach.

    Paying homage to one of Vienna’s most prominent composers, leading fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, winner of the first prize and audience prize at the Bruges International Fortepiano Competition, plays varied works by Mozart, as well as a pair of works by C.P.E Bach on Thursday, February 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Zankel Hall. The intrepid Hugo Wolf Quartet performs works spanning three eras of Viennese classics, performing Haydn’s String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 33, No. 2, "Joke," Schubert’s String Quartet in G Major, D. 887, and Berg’s romantically tormented Lyric Suite, on Friday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Weill Recital Hall.

    On Saturday, March 1 at 1:00 p.m. in Weill Recital Hall, a Carnegie Hall Discovery Day titled Franz Schubert’s Last Years, features Graham Johnson as keynote speaker, music director, and pianist during an afternoon of conversation and performance centered on the final years of the renowned Romantic-era composer. This fertile period for the prolific composer saw the creation of some of his most beloved masterworks, including the song cycles Winterreisse, and Die schöne Mullerin, as well as numerous string quartets, sonatas, and symphonies. In addition to the keynote lecture by Mr. Johnson, the event features a vocal recital with soprano Susanna Philips, tenor Nicholas Phan, and baritone John Brancy, as well as a performance of Schubert’s String Quintet in C Major with Jasper String Quartet and cellist Andrew Janss.
