Symposium 129-THE VERY FIRST VIENNESE SCHOOL

Sunday, 20 January 2019 @ 5:00pm

THE VERY FIRST VIENNESE SCHOOL

Works of Schmelzer, Bertali, Kerll, Fux, and Muffat.

In contrast to the so-called First Viennese School of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven or its 20th-century successor, the second school of Berg, Schoenberg and Webern, stands the wondrous and fantastical music of 17th-century Vienna. While Muffat, Schmelzer and Bertali may not have the name recognition as these later heirs to their city, in The Very First Viennese School we invite you to delight in another Helicon symposium filled with surprising discoveries.
