Whether in search of fame, inspiration, connections, or the simple intellectual camaraderie of its cafés, creative thinkers have been drawn to the Austrian capital of Vienna for centuries. No profession competes historically with the art of music when it comes to Vienna, an environment in which Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms bloomed and produced arguably the greatest music ever composed. This program pairs two iconic works of the late 18th century, composed by Mozart at the height of his powers and by Beethoven setting out to take Vienna by storm. To conclude, Brahms’ mighty second piano quartet synthesizes the best of both the Classical and Romantic ages, connecting Mozart and Beethoven by design (and with Schumann in spirit).
