38th International Musikfest
14. May – 23 June 2017
Pierre Boulez's fascination with metamorphosis and the continuous development of his own compositions is never clearer than in his cycle «Notations». It was Boulez's friend and companion, Daniel Barenboim, who gave the world premieres of «Notations I-IV» 35 years ago. Now, to mark the opening of the 38th Internationales Musikfest, Barenboim will again conduct Boulez's fascinating orchestral pieces with the Vienna Philharmonic. But the Internationales Musikfest, which uplifts audiences with its openness, will not only focus on the works of the French avant-garde composer: top international soloists, musicians, ensembles and orchestras will celebrate the most beautiful season of the year with a kaleidoscope of vocal, chamber and orchestral works in an artistic highpoint of entire concert year.
