About

Once upon a time, western civilization seemed to be centered on the cities of Vienna, Prague, and Budapest. Not only were they imperial cities, but they were home to highly respected universities, opulent opera houses, lively coffee houses... and the world's best composers. Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Dvorák, Wagner, Bruckner, Mahler, Smetana, Bartók, Johann Strauss…the list could go on and on. What conditions led to this "perfect storm" of music? Yvonne Caruthers presents a stimulating lecture on the extraordinary confluence that led to this magnificent era. Note: The NSO and WNO do not perform in this event.
