Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center
Stars of Vienna
March 1, 2022 | 7:30 pm
Throughout history, artists have flocked to the world’s cultural centers. Whether in search of inspiration, fame, or camaraderie, creative thinkers have been drawn to the Austrian capital of Vienna for centuries. The environment in which Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms immersed themselves allowed these geniuses to produce some of the greatest music ever composed. This program pairs two iconic works of the late 18th century—one composed by Mozart at the height of his creative powers and another by a young Beethoven who was beginning to take Vienna by storm—alongside a work that synthesizes the best of both the Classical and Romantic ages: Brahms’s mighty second piano quartet.
Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission).
