A BEETHOVEN CONCERT BY THE MAHLER PHILHARMONIC
WOLFGANG SCHEIDT - Conductor

* abgespielt

A superlative “Ludwig van Beethoven Concert” is promised by the orchestra and soloists of the Mahler Philharmonic. The orchestra comprises national and international musicians and is well-known for providing musicality of the highest standards as well as for its traditional interpretations of Austrian composers. Following successful debuts in the Wiener Konzerthaus and Carnegie Hall, the orchestra will perform under the baton of Wolfgang Scheidt, the outstanding conductor who was formerly assistant to both Karajan and Bernstein. At the recommendation of Karl Böhm, Scheidt conducted. Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and other works with the Munich Philharmonic. Scheidt’s legendary talent as a conductor in concert houses around the world has been praised more than once, including the review in the Kurier of his appearance with the Vienna Philharmonic: “…a precise, energetic conductor – and what’s more, one of those warm-blooded musical animals that we have seen so rarely in recent times”. The exceptionally talented and multi award-winning pianist Jonathan Floril, who took first prize in the Chopin competition in New York (whose previous winners include Cliburn and Perahia), will appear as a soloist.

The bestowal of the 2014 “Conductors’ Academy Award” promises to be one of the evening’s highlights.
