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.
