We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Greengage Ventures to make this unique musical journey exclusively available to our ACF followers - for free over a period of four weeks.
Join us and explore a special series of four mini-documentaries and recitals on Brahms, Mahler, Haydn and Schönberg, filmed at our ACF London Salon. It's like going to four private concerts, all with your very own expert guide: orchestral conductor Jonathan Berman.
Postcards From Vienna is designed for anyone who would like to learn something new about some of the most prominent composers in history.
The series steers clear of music terminology and focuses on what matters: listening and watching closely, enjoying the music and seeing brilliant artists perform.
How it works: Every Wednesday over the 4-week period (10. February — 10. March), you will receive via e-mail exclusive access to a new episode or 'postcard' of this 4-part series to watch at a time that suits you.
Just register anytime on our website for tickets to join and receive free access to the videos.
Don't worry, if you miss an episode - they will be available to watch back after release until the 10th of March 2021.
Each episode consists of a short talk followed by a recital. Each one is roughly 30 minutes long.
Musical programme & release schedule:
10 February: Postcard 1 on Johannes Brahms
17 February: Postcard 2 on Gustav Mahler
24 February: Postcard 3 on Joseph Haydn
3 March: Postcard 4 on Arnold Schönberg
Save the date! As part of Postcards From Vienna, you will be invited to an optional live video discussion with conductor and host Jonathan Berman. The discussion will be held on 10 March 2021 at 5-6pm UK time / 6-7pm Vienna time. Register for tickets to receive details.
The mini-documentaries and recitals were filmed at the Austrian Cultural Forum in London in July 2020.
The recitals are preformed by American pianist George Fu and Australian mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean.
This is a Greengage Ventures production.
