Orchestras from seven nations in nine concerts live up to the name of this cycle. Italy is represented twice with the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and the Filarmonica della Scala, which is coming to the Vienna Konzerthaus almost exactly 50 years after its only appearance so far. Under the direction of her music director Riccardo Chailly, she participates in a Mahler focus, which includes the ninth as well as the sixth. The beginning is monumental with Bruckner’s Fifth, which is in the hands of the Saxon State Orchestra Dresden and Christian Thielemann as competent as it is steeped in tradition. Chopin Competition winners Bruce Liu, Sol Gabetta, Víkingur Ólafsson and our portrait artist Lisa Batiashvili put solo highlights on the opulent orchestral sound scene.
The Vienna Philharmonic under the direction of Jakub Hrůša will replace with their concert on 10 May 2023 originally for the 11 June 2023 planned concert of the musicAeterna Orchestra.
