Zubin Mehta direction
This long-standing association offers a programme in the authentic spirit of Vienna.
Zubin Mehta - DR
Brahms Tragic Overture op. 81
Haydn Sinfonia concertante
Bartók Concerto for orchestra
This Indian conductor, who turned 80 last year, and the musicians of the Vienna Philharmonic go back a very long way. They have worked together for over fifty years in dozens of concerts and opera performances and no fewer than five New Year concerts between 1990 and 2015. Very few conductors can boast membership of this small circle of participants in the most watched concert in the world and this speaks volumes about the Viennese people’s respect for Zubin Mehta, a living legend among conductors. We can unreservedly claim that this latest Parisian concert is a major event in the prestigious 25-year history of orchestral residencies at the Théâtre, with a programme which reflects their shared history.
