Twilight in Vienna

This listing is in the past
Southbank Centre: Royal Festival HallBelvedere Road, London, Greater London, SE1 8XX, United Kingdom
Dates/times in London time zone

Imperial Vienna … where playboys and princes waltzed the night away and a teenage genius, born into a musical family, closed his eyes and wove gorgeous musical fairytales. Then the 20th century happened. Conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada shares a last, gorgeous glimpse of that opulent world, as imagined by Richard Strauss. And he follows the former Viennese golden boy Korngold into wartime exile in the USA – where Arabella Steinbacher brings all her sensitivity and panache to his bittersweet, desperately romantic Violin Concerto: music written in Hollywood, but singing of a vanished home.
