Honorary Cross of Science and the Arts for Franz Welser-Möst

On March 7, 2012, Austrian President Dr. Heinz Fischer presented General Music Director Franz Welser-Möst with the Honorary Cross of Science and the Arts, 1st Class. The laudation in the Spiegelsaal of the Hofburg was given by Sven Eric Bechtolf, with the Steude Quartet (Volkhard Steude, Holger Groh, Elmar Landerer and Wolfgang Härtel) providing the music for this occasion which consisted of Franz Schubert's Quartet Movement in C minor, D 703, and the first movement from Antonín Dvořák's String Quartet in F major, op. 96, ("American"), as allusions to Franz Welser-Möst's positions as artistic director of  the Vienna State Opera and principal conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra.
