Trailblazing interpretations of the great masterpieces of the sym-phonic repertoire by the greats of the international music scene – this has always been the promise of the subscription series Wiener Symphoniker. Nine concerts – to which music lovers can add a further date in their calendars with the reconstruction of Beethoven’s legendary Great Academy of 1808 – beckon in the 2019–20 season to the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus. Included on every programme are works that have had a decisive influence on the course of musical history – even if their innovative content initially caused disconcertment among audiences of the time. Thus, next to Brahm’s First Piano Concerto sits Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring’, whose dissonanc-es might seem mild for today’s ears, but which caused a violent uproar at its world premiere. The emerging conductor Joana Mallwitz presents excerpts from Richard Wagner’s Ring, while rising star Santtu-Matias Rouvali makes his debut with the orchestra in a Nordic programme inspired by his Finnish homeland. In addition, world-class artists such as Martha Argerich, Nicola Benedetti and of course Philippe Jordan can be heard.
