*Due to the unavailability of the pianist Cordelia Höfer, Néstor Bayona will be replacing her for both concerts at the Kammersaal of the Philharmonie Berlin.
Around 1900, Vienna’s artistic elite met at the home of the salonnière Berta Zuckerkandl. The dinner in November 1901 is the stuff of legend: Gustav Mahler fell head over heels in love with young Alma Schindler there, marrying her shortly thereafter. Götz Teutsch will trace this and other stories in music and text at his Philharmonic Salon, creating striking images of high society life in Vienna at the turn of the century. The texts will be performed by Austrian actor Peter Matić.
