Klimts Vienna: Art on the Brink


Gustav Klimt, famous for the painting The Kiss, was central to Viennas artistic and musical worlds at the turn of the 20th century, a time of impending crisis. His circle included not only other painters, but also influential artists and thinkers across many disciplines. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of his death, the Raleigh Civic Symphony explores music associated with Klimts Vienna. The concert will include the world premiere of a composition inspired by Klimts work by Japanese-American composer/cellist Paul Wiancko, along with a multidisciplinary work set to the music of Klimts contemporary, Gustav Mahler, that combines music, dance and visual art in a real-time, three-dimensional creation of a new artwork choreographed by NC State Dance Program director Tara Mullins.
