Info

With the classical delicacies from our Christmas subscription, you can prolong the festive fun far into the new year. This year, give your beloved a tryst with the greats of the international classical scene – encounters full of passion, emotion and magic. The Weihnachtspaket Plus package contains four concert highlights from the varied season programme of the Wiener Symphoniker. Lorenzo Viotti, a star among the young generation of conductors, joins Yuja Wang to present the unique magic of Schumann’s lyrical Piano Concerto. In February you can experience one of the great, eagerly awaited artistic highlights of our seasonal Berlioz focus: Berlioz’s adaptation of the Faust legend with Music Director Philippe Jordan and his elite ensemble of international star singers. Lahav Shani, Principal Guest Conductor of the Wiener Symphoniker and successor to Zubin Mehta at the Israel Philharmonic, invites you to a colourful and very French programme for the traditional spring concert in Vienna. And Leonidas Kavakos puts his double talent as world-class conductor and violinist to the test in a concert combining Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto and Brahms’s First Symphony.
