walk with me in vienna
"To walk forever like this among the flowers, with my dearest one beside me, to feel oneself so entirely at one with the Universe, without care, free as the lark in the sky above…” Anton Webern’s love for his future wife inspired Langsamer Satz, a gentle lovesong on string choir. German pianist-conductor Lars Vogt takes you on a lyrical stroll through Viennese musical inspirations, featuring Mozart’s joyous twenty-first Piano Concerto with its famous “Elvira Madigan” andante, and Schumann’s stately Symphony No. 2.
For a moment we joined Vogt in a breathless silence, as the quiet poignancy of the music held both pianist and audience rapt; proof that the highest compliment for a performer is not in fact eager applause, but an audience reluctant to break the spell of a sublimely placed double-barline.” – Limelight Magazine
He is a rare talent – and we are fortunate that he’s our talent at this time. – The Chronicle
