Wiener Symphoniker / Thibaudet / Jordan «Frühling in Wien»
Let the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and its chief conductor Phiiippe Jordan take you on a blissful stroll through jazz and the classics. Bernstein and Gershwin knew how to capture an audience with a knowing wink and a cheeky smile. French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet also has a penchant for jazz and that makes him an ideal interpreter of Gershwin’s Piano Concerto which uniquely combines classical music and jazz.

Miklós Perényi / Sir András Schiff
Sir András Schiff and his compatriot Miklós Perényi they will perform Beethoven’s complete works for cello and piano. The concerts will also mark the end of the special portrait series dedicated to Schiff. Like the pianist’s, the repertoire of cellist Perényi is wide and includes contemporary works. His recordings of the Dvořák and Ligeti concertos enjoy cult status. His playing is characterised by virtuosity, a clear and focussed tone and an exquisite sense of style and taste. Schiff is his ideal partner, but it’s a partnership that also allows room for personal traits, too.
