Great Performances: Vienna Philharmonic Summer Night Concert 2013

Distinguished conductor Lorin Maazel leads the fifth annual Vienna Philharmonic Summer Night Concert 2013 concert. This year’s gala concert revolves around the works of Richard Wagner and Giuseppe Verdi, both of whom would have celebrated their 200th birthday this year, and features German Canadian tenor soloist Michael Schade.

The outdoor concert, in the magnificent baroque gardens of Imperial Schönbrunn Palace, was recorded May 30 during a windswept rainstorm. Selections from Verdi included the triumphal march from “Aida”, the overtures to “La Forza del Destino”, as well as “La mia letizia infondere” from “I Lombardi”. The Wagner selections featured the Grail Narrative from “Lohengrin” and music from his operas “The Mastersingers of Nuremberg”, “Tristan and Isolde”, and “Die Walküre”.
