Sommernachtskoncert 2016 [Region 2]

New or Used: 2 copies from $29.99

The Vienna Philharmonic performed its annual Summer Night Concert at Schonbrunn, an open air event with free admission, in the unique ambiance of the gardens of Schonbrunn Palace on Thursday 26 May, 2016. The Summer Night Concert was conducted by Seymon Bychkov and had the soloists Katia and Marielle Labeque. Since 2008 the Vienna Philharmonic have provided an outstanding experience for all visitors. In the recent years the orchestra has been conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, Valery Gergiev, Franz Welser-Most, Daniel Barenboim, Georges Pretre and Zubin Mehta. Among the previous guest soloists: Yefim Bronfman, Benjamin Schmid, Lang Lang and Rudolph Buchbinder. It is Sony Classical's fourth release of the Summer Night Concert.

In 2016 Semyon Bychkov conducted his first Summer Night Concert with the Vienna Philharmonic in a program that focused entirely on French composers and covers the period between Romanticism and Neoclassicism, providing an overview of the vast stylistic range of French music during the
19th and early 20th centuries. The soloists in Poulenc's Double Concerto in D minor FP 61 will be Katia and Marielle Labeque. This is the first time that this particular work has been played at a Philharmonic concert.

The tradition of the Vienna Philharmonic goes back to 1842, when Otto Nicolai conducted a Grand Concert with all members of the imperial "Hof-Operntheater". This event was originally called "Philharmonic Academy" and is regarded as the origin of the orchestra. Since its founding the orchestra is managed by the administrative committee, a democratically elected body and works artistically, organizationally and financially autonomous. All decisions are reached on a democratic basis during the general meeting of all members.

Bychov's approach to music making combines innate musicality with the rigours of Russian pedagogy. With his time carefully balanced between the concert hall and the opera house, Bychkov conducts repertoire that spans four centuries. Bychkov currently holds the Klemperer Chair of Conducting at the Royal Academy of Music, and the Gunter Wand Conducting Chair with the BBC Symphony Orchestra with whom he appears annually at the BBC Proms.

Katia and Marielle Labeque are sibling pianists renowned for their ensemble of synchronicity and energy. Daughters of Ada Cecchi (who was, herself, a pupil of Marguerite Long), Katia and Marielle had a childhood filled with music. Their musical ambitions started at an early age and they rose to
international fame with their contemporary rendition of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue (one of the first gold records in classical music) and have since developed a stunning career with performances worldwide.
