Info
Not one but two legendary representatives of their art, both close to the Wiener Symphoniker's hearts, can be seen and heard at the first orchestra concert of the new season in the Wiener Musikverein. Pianist Rudolf Buchbinder is returning to the Wiener Symphoniker following a five-year break on the occasion of his 70th birthday, not only as soloist in Johann Strauss's concert paraphrase for piano on "Die Fledermaus", but also as conductor in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1. Taking turns with Buchbinder, Georges Prêtre, honorary conductor of the Wiener Symphoniker, will help direct the evening. After kicking off with Beethoven's Overture to the incidental music "Egmont" op. 84, he will also conduct Johann Strauss's spirited overture to the operetta "Die Fledermaus" and Maurice Ravel's masterpiece "Bolero".
