Info

In its second year, the Vienna Advent in St. Stephen's Cathedral was already a tradition in the capital's musical calendar. This year, too, the atmospheric concert was a musical winter journey through European music history. Adeste fideles" with the Vienna Boys' Choir closed the arc over pre-Christmas classics by Bach, Puccini, Berlioz or Richard Strauss.
