Info

Innovative concert formats especially must move with the times: for five years now, the series Fridays@7 has been an inviting way to start the weekend, with short and sweet 7pm concerts in the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus – followed by an unconventional musical finale given in the foyer by the evening’s artists. It has been in no small part thanks to world stars, who the audience can see up-close perform-ing chamber music or jazz-like improvisation, that the series has quickly become an outright audience favourite. In order to be able to present the most sought-after musical artists in the future, the corset around the strict format of the series has had to be loosened a little: in the 2019–20 season, under the new title WienerSymphoniker@7, the series will present the orchestra and top names in classical music not only on Fridays but on other days of the week as well. After all, artists such as Yefim Bronfman, Lahav Shani, Nicola Benedetti, Nicholas Angelich or Gil Shaham enhance any day of the week.
