Info
For many years the conducting profession was one of the last bastions of male dominance in our society. But the myth is increasingly falling apart. Three women – Karina Canellakis, Oksana Lyniv and Susanna Mälkki – will stand at the podium of the Wiener Symphoniker in the current season. In the programme that Mälkki is rehearsing with the Wiener Symphoniker, she contrasts old and new: in addition to the “Good Friday magic” from Richard Wagner’s “Parsifal” and Richard Strauss’s tone poem based on Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Also sprach Zarathustra”, Mälkki performs Béla Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto with the Swiss pianist Andreas Haefliger as soloist.
