Christmas in Vienna: The Concert
Reflections on the Imperial City

Sunday, December 18, 2016 at 3:00pm

The magic of the city of Vienna arrives in New York's Lower East Side by way of Christmas in Vienna: the Concert on Sunday, Dec. 18, at 3:00pm. Originally recorded in Vienna, the concert and disc are comprised of music composed and performed by pianist Burnett Thompson. Complete info is HERE.

Christmas in Vienna is a freely improvised set of pieces that reflect the complex cultural landscape of Vienna. A complex city, Vienna is on one level devoted to art, architecture, opera, concert music, jazz, and Viennese popular music. On another level, it is a city that has suffered terrible loss, including empire, citizenry, and cultural identity. As the eminent Viennese pianist Friedrich Gulda noted, every Viennese artist inherits both the sense of majesty and the sense of sorrow. Christmas in Vienna is a collection of spontaneously composed vignettes that reflect the vast range of Viennese culture and character, from Strauss to Schönberg, St. Stephen's cathedral to the Vienna Woods.
