About The Performance
Carnegie Hall launches its bold exploration of the rise and fall of Germany’s Weimar Republic with this program by The Cleveland Orchestra—called “America’s finest” by The New York Times—and Perspectives artist Franz Welser-Möst. Experience Krenek’s Little Symphony, his final symphonic work before fleeing his homeland of Austria and the Anschluss of 1938, as well as the Adagio from Mahler’s unfinished Tenth Symphony, completed by Krenek. The program continues with an orchestral arrangement of a landmark Bartók string quartet, followed by a suite of music from Bartók’s lurid Miraculous Mandarin ballet. Though it was quickly banned following the premiere, Bartók considered its score one of his finest.
