Melodrama by Georg Friedrich Benda / with Edita Malovcic / Junge Philharmonie Wien

* abgespielt

Medea — a woman torn between vengeance and love, escape and banishment, a woman who is both healer and murderess. G. F. Benda, a contemporary of Mozart, created a melodrama whose words and music lay bare the passions of this mythical figure. This is followed in the second section of the concert by Schönberg’s Five Pieces for Orchestra, a musical testament to his marriage. This promises to be an exciting evening of music and theatre.

Presented in cooperation with the Arnold Schönberg Center
