The Lost Chord: October 7 - Wine from Weingartner
Over the course of his career as a conductor, Felix Weingartner (1863-1942) held official posts with the Vienna Hofoper (succeeding Gustav Mahler), the Vienna Philharmonic, and the Vienna Volksoper. He was particularly renowned for his Beethoven interpretations. However, for all his success on the podium, he considered himself equally, if not more so, a composer. Hear Weingartner’s Symphony No. 2, from 1901, and his 1935 recording, with the Vienna Philharmonic, of the scherzo from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. It’s Weingartner decanted, this Sunday at 10 pm.
