King of Prussia
On Sunday, April 30 at 3 pm, join us for an unforgettable Afternoon in Vienna at our King of Prussia flagship showroom, located at 198 Allendale Rd., King of Prussia, PA 19406. Experience the sights, sounds, and flavors of Vienna, the world capital of classical music and the birthplace of the Bösendorfer piano. Come hear and play a rare instrument: a reproduction of an instrument that Johann Strauss had commissioned to be built for him in the 1890s. Hear world class musicians performing works by Mozart and Richard Strauss. And savor a delectable selection of Austrian wines and Viennese pastries, such as the decadently gooey chocolate Sachertorte. “Vienna was the center of classical music,” said Philadelphia Orchestra music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. “If you were a composer in this city or really, in this neighborhood, you could be influenced by the world’s finest composers and artists. They were all there.” In the spirit of Maestro Yannick’s memorable words, we will be featuring a performance of Vienna-influenced composers Mozart and Richard Strauss by Italian violin prodigy and Curtis Institute student Andrea Obiso, accompanied by pianist Hugh Sung, performing on the Bösendorfer 200 Strauss grand piano. Because seating is limited, registration is required to attend. Fill out the RSVP form below, and we look forward to meeting you in ‘Vienna’ on the 30th!
