The second program, on Saturday, February 25 at 8:00 p.m., features Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder in Brahms's Piano Concerto No. 1, Schubert's Symphony No. 8 "Unfinished," and Bartók's The Miraculous Mandarin Suite; and on Sunday, February 26 at 2:00 p.m., the Vienna Philharmonic will perform Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4 and Schubert's Symphony No. 9 in C Major, "Great."
