Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
Considered one of the finest orchestras in the world, the Vienna Philharmonic is known for its unique sound that renowned conductor Bruno Walter said, upon hearing it for the first time, was “a life-altering impression.” This experience, shared by millions, has been attributed to the orchestra’s use of unusual musical instruments such as the Weiner oboe instead of the French oboe, and the Vienna horn in F, which uses a Pumpenventil instead of a rotary valve like most other orchestral horns, and contributes to the “liquid legato” that is one of the company’s trademarks. This single night performance, conducted by Maestro Lorin Maazel and featuring soprano Juliane Banse singing Schubert and Mahler, is prefaced by a pre-concert lecture by Dr. Burton Karson and is certain to be a magical evening for all.
