This concert is Renée Fleming's very personal homage to "Fin de Siècle" Vienna. At the turn of the last century, the capital of the Austrian Empire was also one of the cultural centers. The city of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, a melting pot of cultures and musical traditions, attracted gifted musicians and composers alike and provided the perfect soil for much of the greatest music of that time. With this selection of works by Hugo Wolf (1860-1903) and Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), combined with more progressive songs by Alexander Zemlinsky (1871-1942), Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951) and Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957), Renée Fleming presents to us the full variety of this unique epoch. The venue of her recital with Maciej Pikulski at the piano is the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein.
