Members of the Vienna Philharmonic
Erich Wolfgang Korngold
String Sextet in D major Op. 10
Ludwig van Beethoven
Septet in E flat major Op. 20
Returning to the Pierre Boulez Saal following their celebrated appearances in the past two seasons, members of the Vienna Philharmonic perform chamber music from their orchestra’s hometown: the String Sextet by 18-year-old Erich Wolfgang Korngold is juxtaposed with Beethoven’s famous Septet for winds and strings, which quickly became one of the composer’s most popular works following its 1800 premiere.
