Wiener Symphoniker Cycle

10 Concerts

Info

In our 2020-21 season, the Wiener Symphoniker cycle once again brings together a hand-chosen selection of masterpieces from the symphonic repertoire. On 10 evenings in the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus, in collaboration with some of the greatest international names of music, the Wiener Symphoniker traverses an arc that spans from Viennese classical piano concertos, to the milestones of the romantic era, and to the key works of the modern age.

For scheduling reasons, the concert originally planned for May 20, 2021 will now take place on September 7, 2020. This necessary shift also results in a change in the line-up and program: So on Monday, September 7th 2020, you can now expect Rudolf Buchbinder as soloist and conductor Daniel Harding with works by Schumann and Richard Strauss.

At the second concert in the series, which Andrés Orozco-Estrada leads as the new chief conductor of the orchestra, the program includes Richard Strauss' epic tone poem "Ein Heldenleben". Strauss features again later in the series with the "Rosenkavalier Suite" and the sound poem "Don Juan", at the same concert the exceptional American violinist Hilary Hahn can be seen with Brahms' only Violin Concerto. Together with Martha Argerich, Lahav Shani interprets Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major and brings Debussy's impressionistic sound bath "La Mer" to the ear. The grande dame of the Russian piano school Elisabeth Leonskaja can be seen as the soloist of Mozart's Ninth Piano Concerto. Other highlights include Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, Stravinski's Firebird and Beethoven's First Piano Concerto.
