String Ensemble & Solo


Otto M. Schwarz is not only a composer of symphonic music, but he also composes for films and documentaries. This is the genre in which Pictures of Vienna for string orchestra were written, depicting various sights, events, or characters from Vienna’s golden age. By writing this work as if composed in that time, the composer has created an immediate link to the era. The ball at the Vienna State Opera is one of the most famous festivities in the world and the social highlight of the Viennese Fasching (carnival). It is a meeting place for international artists, politicians and business leaders.
