Program notes

Join the prestigious Vienna Philharmonic in an exceptional Germanic program, live from the stage of the Grand Palais des Festivals for the Salzburg Festival 2022. The program begins with the fabulous opera singer Elīna Garanča as soloist in a sublime performance of Brahms’s Alto Rhapsody, composed for the wedding of Julie Schumann, the daughter of the brilliant Clara and Robert. Bruckner’s monumental and solemn Symphony No. 9 in D Minor follows, conducted by maestro Christian Thielemann, a true expert in the Austrian composer’s repertoire—a perfect end to an exceptional concert!
