Vienna-Mahler Cycle III
The concert is dedicated to the great violinist Yehudi Menuhin (1916-1999) in the centenary of his birth.
Vienna was Europe’s music capital for many years. Among the many composers who many Vienna their home, Mozart—and later Mahler—belong to those who left an indelible stamp on the city’s musical life with their work. Of course, the ever-fresh waltz is a key element of that musical identity and a form in which many composers wrote exceptional music, including Themistocles Metaxas, a Greek composer who has largely been forgotten.
