Performed by Franz Welser-Möst, conductor
Memorial Hall, 208 East Cameron Avenue, Chapel Hill, NC 27514
One of today’s most distinguished conductors, Franz Welser-Möst—music director of the Cleveland Orchestra—has developed a particularly close and productive relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic as a guest conductor.
This performance features Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht—an expression of nature and emotion inspired by Richard Dehmel’s mystical poem—and Schubert’s 9th Symphony, considered to be his greatest work.
