Presented in association with the Kennedy Center
Lorin Maazel, conductor
For more than 160 years, the venerable Vienna Philharmonic has been closely associated with the history and tradition of European classical music. "Lush string tone, beautifully polished and unified brass playing, and woodwind playing with a seasoned timbre unlike any other orchestra's.... An orchestra sitting atop multiple layers of music history. Its musicians play with a sound and a sensibility that seems to come to them as naturally as breathing. (The New York Times).
Performance Timing: Part One - 33 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 42 min.
