Dhafer Youssef «Diwan of Beauty and Odd»
When Dhafer Youssef left his Tunisian home nearly 30 years with vague musical plans, he could not have guessed that he would eventually collaborate with the crème de la crème of the international jazz scene, as he does on his latest album, «Diwan of Beauty and Odd», which he recorded with luminaries of the New York scene such as Aaron Parks or Ben Williams.

New York Philharmonic / Landshamer / Gilbert
Alan Gilbert is a big fan of the orchestra's sound: «It's such an expressive, warm sound, so homogenous in the best sense of the word. If things have to stand out, then they do. But the refinement of the sound is so subtle!» The orchestra and Gilbert will appear in Vienna where they will perform Béla Bartók's scorching Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, as well as Gustav Mahler's delicate Fourth Symphony, with Christina Landshamer as soprano soloist.
