39th International Music Festival

11th May until 25th June 2019

Mahler’s Eighth Symphony with the Vienna Philharmonic, several Vienna choirs and a top line-up of soloists under Franz Welser-Möst will open the 39th International Music Festival of the Wiener Konzerthausgesellschaft. And other great works of faith and conviction, such as Haydn’s »The Creation«, Britten’s »War Requiem« and Shostakovich’s »Leningrad Symphony « will be performed during the festival. The programme stretches from early to new music, and alongside a rich offering of classical music, will also include jazz and world music, as well as literature and film events. Bach’s »Goldberg-Variations«, for example, will be performed both in chamber and piano versions, and there will also be a performance of one of the key works of the 21st century, Fausto Romitelli’s Video-Oper »An Index of Metals«. Rounding off the diverse programme will be a portrait of Sofia Gubaidulina.
