In the second of a series of three videos in which soprano Renée Fleming and conductor and music historian Leon Botstein discuss Vienna at the turn of the 20th century, they examine audience reactions to 20th-century music and explore how audiences should approach music by Viennese composers of the period.
The series accompanies the May 4 finale of Renée Fleming's Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall. Vienna: Window to Modernity is a thoughtful tribute to the time and place where the European musical tradition, under the influence of literary and visual arts, gave way to the 20th century.
