Carnegie Hall Presents

Vienna: City of Dreams Sampler I

Hear an esteemed ensemble in both of its long-standing roles—as the Vienna Philharmonic and as the orchestra for the Vienna State Opera—in this heavy-hitter series of concerts that include masterworks such as Beethoven’s triumphant Ninth Symphony and Strauss's opera Salome. The series also includes a musical marathon that honors Viennese music and its cultural influence, including opera extracts and songs significant to the pride of the nation, works by influential composers who frequented the city, and waltzes and polkas that mirror a traditional New Year's Day program.
