The Music of Budapest, Prague, and Vienna is now onstage at the Kennedy Center through March 29th. From opera to orchestral concerts, choral works to chamber recitals, music from these three pivotal European cities offers a tryptich through the Classical and Romantic periods, and up to the present day.
Kennedy Center and NSO Music Director Christoph Eschenbach speaks with Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton about the Budapest-Prague-Vienna festival, and its varied presentations that include concert versions of Bartok's Bluebeard's Castle and Beethoven's Fidelio, with acclaimed soloists joining the National Symphony Orchestra.
