In his imposing oeuvre, Gustav Mahler attempted to capture the world and all its joy and suffering in music. Nearly all of his symphonies will be performed in the Wiener Konzerthaus in the new season, interpreted by different orchestras under the baton of some very strong personalities.
In a dazzling start to both the Mahler cycle and the new season, the Vienna Philharmonic will be conducted by Daniel Harding, who began to explore Mahler’s cosmos at an early age under the tutelage of Mahler expert, Claudio Abbado.

Only a few weeks after the Pygmalion Ensemble made «Bach pur» its mission, Philippe Herreweghe will turn his full attention on Beethoven from the point of view of historically informed performance practice: Don’t miss the chance to hear Beethoven’s lesser known works such as his brilliant C-Minor Fantasy op. 80 – with Kristian Bezuidenhout on piano – or the cantata «Calm sea and prosperous voyage» op. 112 in full «HIP» sound, performed by the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées and the Collegium Vocale Gent.
