Postcards From Vienna is a mini-series of four videos designed for anyone who'd like to learn something new about some of the most prominent composers in history: Brahms, Mahler, Haydn and Schoenberg.
You might know these four names, or you might not. You might be studying music in school, or a lifelong classical music lover, or new to classical music. It doesn't matter. All we ask is that you come curious and ready to listen closely!
Each episode starts with a talk by British conductor Jonathan Berman. Jonathan shares his active, curious approach to listening to music. He draws on examples in visual art and sculpture and points out musical details you might not have noticed before. Together, you'll discover nuances that bring the music to life.
Following each talk you'll see the music performed, up close and in high definition, by American pianist George Fu and Australian mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean.
This series was filmed at the Austrian Cultural Forum in London.
