Vienna's Golden Age
Schubert's Grand Duo Sonata & Beethoven's 5th Symphony

Written within the same decade, Schubert's melodious Grand Duo Sonata and Beethoven's tempestuous 5th Symphony (in a transcription by the composer for violin and piano) are like two sides of the same glittering coin that was Vienna in the early 19th century. This golden age was an apogee for the Imperial capitol, and the artistic and political triumphs of this age have yet to be equaled.

The WSO builds connections across the region with exploratory concerts, events, and educational programs. The WSO maintains a firm commitment to produce programs that are of value to its patrons, participants and community partners. This commitment is rooted in the Symphony’s core belief that music education and shared cultural experiences are essential to creating community.  Founded in 1938, the Symphony has assembled over 100 of the most talented musicians across New England to perform throughout Northwest Connecticut.  The 2019-2020 season celebrates Maestro Leif Bjaland’s 25th Anniversary as Music Director & Conductor with the WSO.
