RSO Wien 2012-13

Somebody extend this man’s contract
Now this is what I call an imaginative season. So there’s your Sibelius 5s, Bruckner 9s and German Requiems just to keep the Viennese coming. But I think the rest speaks for itself.


23rd November, Cornelius Meister – Miroslav Srnka piano concerto, world premiere (Nicolas Hodges), Dvořák 7

7th December, Ingo Metzmacher – Schreker, Mahler (with Petra Lang), er, Pfitzner, Berg op. 6

5th April, Cornelius Meister – This is the concert where the police start arresting people who complain about not hearing Brahms 4 in over a week

5th May, Alain Altinoglu - Le Martyre de Saint-Sébastien (Petibon, Singverein)


11th October, Cornelius Meister – Strauss’s Festliches Präludium commissioned to open the Konzerthaus 100 years ago, 4’33’’ (silence after the awful Festliches Präludium – yes indeed, Meister knows what he’s doing), extracts from Parsifal (arr. Meister), Lulu Suite (Laura Aikin)

5th November, Susanna Mälkki – Bernhard Gander (dirty angel, 2010), Olga Neuwirth (Remnants of Song ... an Amphigory, 2009), Ligeti (Lontano; Atmosphères).
