Vienna Philharmonic plays American woman composer for Christmasmain
This is the orchestra’s musical Christmas card:
The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra offers their Holiday gratitude with the latest installment of their Musical Greetings series. The video contains two romantic and lyrical pieces played by the Orchestra’s Concertmaster, Rainer Honeck, on the violin and Anneleen Lenaerts on the harp: Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s, Tanzlied des Pierrot, Op. 12 from Opera ‘Die tote Stadt’ and Amy Beach’s Berceuse, the second of her Three Compositions for Violin and Piano, Op. 40. These beautiful pieces have been recorded just for The Vienna Philharmonic Society in the Brahms Saal of the Musikverein in Vienna.
