Throughout history Vienna has been a rockin’ place for artists, especially musicians. Vienna Rocks! celebrates that rich musical heritage with performances of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s iconic Serenade in B-flat, the “Gran Partita” (though Mozart never actually used the title “Gran Partita”!), Franz Krommer’s Octet-Partita in B-flat, Op. 67, and Ludwig von Beethoven’s Octet in E-flat, Op. 103. The program will close with the premiere of a setting of the late Austrian rock star Falco’s Rock Me Amadeus, arranged on commission for the MWE and scored for rock band, vocalist and wind orchestra. You never know what you’re going to get at an MWE show! For more information call 214.768.2787.
