sommernachtskonzert / summer night concert

vienna welcomed me pretty well, i would say.

last night we went to a summer night concert (or, in german sommernachtskonzert) – an event organized on a yearly basis, in the gardens of schönbrunn palace and hosted by the vienna philharmonic. with this open-air concert in schönbrunn, the vienna philharmonic wishes to provide all viennese, as well as visitors to the city, with a special musical experience in the beautiful setting of schönbrunn palace and its lovely gardens. and as i heard, the repertoire is different each year.

this year’s summer night concert featured compositions by northern european composers (such as christian sinding, carl nielsen, etc) whose works are today nearly forgotten, but during their lifetime were very popular and successful.

“music is magic. what happens in the moment when music is played? people pause, they stand still and no words are needed”  were the opening words of the twelfth summer night concert. and that’s what we did. we stood and enjoyed the great performance in the rather chilly spring night.

ps. my photos weren’t of high quality, so i took these photos from the kurier’s website.
