You can't get more Advent spirit, more Vienna and more contemplation than this when the Wiener Symphoniker once again move to the spectacular ambience of Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral for the grand Advent concert on 7 December.
The programme, led by the orchestra's first guest conductor Marie Jacquot, travels temporally from Michael Praetorius ("Es ist ein Ros entsprungen") to Andrew Lloyd Webber ("Pie Jesu") and geographically from Leopold Mozart's Austria to Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Russia ("Nutcracker" and "Snowflake Waltz") on to Albert Malotte's USA and Adolphe Adam's France ("Cantique de Noël").
Soprano Fatma Said, tenor Jonathan Tetelman and the Singverein der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde will take you on a journey through musical Christmas traditions from all over the world. The traditional Advent concert of the Wiener Symphoniker will also be broadcast this year on ORF III. The programme will also include the great Christmas classics such as Bach's "Jesus bleibet meine Freude" and - to conclude the concert together - "O du fröhliche".
Tickets for the preview at 18:00 and the concert at 20:30 are available here:
