Harnoncourt conducts Die Fledermaus
The Wiener Symphoniker - The Arnold Schoenberg Chor Wien

This document is only available in German without subtitles.

At the Wiener Festwochen in May 1999, Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducted for the first time one of the most sparkling and comical of German Operas, Die Fledermaus.

Fast and vivacious as the mood of the opera is, Harnoncourt's interpretation is slower and reflective. From its rehearsal to its actual Premiere, we witness the unfolding of a new philosophy.
