Much of the music in this year’s festival was written in Vienna
Haydn, Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert, Richard Strauss all composed there and Ravel’s Schubert-inspired Valses Nobles et Sentimentales is all about the great city.
A hub of musical creativity without parallel!
Come and hear our handpicked team who are among the best string players in Europe
They will play a series of the greatest string sextets:
· Boccherini (the first string sextet written)
· Brahms’ glowing, ochre-coloured sextet in B flat
· Richard Strauss’s sextet embedded in his last opera Capriccio
· Tchaikovsky’s joyous recollection of his favourite place in the Souvenir de Florence.
