Why you love the Fringe.

Vienna 1847: J.K. Mertz's Bardenklänge, Op. 13

September 13th at 6:00pm

This program is a culmination of guitarist Andrew Flory's love for Mertz's music, in which he dives into Mertz's largest collection of works and takes the listener back in time to Vienna in 1847, when this collection was published. Vienna 1847 features classical guitar from Johann Kaspar Mertz's Bardenklänge, Op.13. Andrew finds these works best capture the essence of Mertz's music, which ranges from the melancholic to the sublime.
