Benefit Concert for Unser Stephansdom

On December 21, 2008, in the large Redoutensaal, the President of Austria, Dr. Heinz Fischer; Cardinal Dr. Christoph Schönborn, who offered words of reflection; and numerous other well known personalities from Austrian society were in attendance at a matinee performance given to benefit the Association "Unser Stephansdom". The artistic conception was from Herbert Föttinger, director of the Theater in the Josefstadt, who read selected letters written by and about Franz Schubert, as well as selections from the "Winterreise" by Wilhelm Müller. Vienna Philharmonic members Rainer Honeck, Clemens Hellsberg, Robert Bauerstatter and Friedrich Dolezal performed the first movement from Schubert's String Quartet in A Minor, D 804, and the Variations Movement from the String Quartet in D minor, D 810 ("Death and the Maiden"). Rainer Honeck was joined by Christopher Hinterhuber for the Fantasy for Violin and Piano in C Major, D 934. The opening of the event consisted of the first movement from Mozart's String Quartet in C Major, KV 157, and it concluded with the "Air" from the Overture No. 3 in D Major, BWV 1068, by Johann Sebastian Bach.
