Over the centuries, the Wiener Symphoniker has developed into one of the world’s leading orchestras for the symphonic repertoire, under the baton of such iconic conductors as Richard Strauss and Herbert von Karajan. As of September 2024, Petr Popelka will also be in that lineup, as he becomes the orchestra's 18th chief conductor. As a soloist in the Queen Elisabeth Hall, Gautier Capuçon will demonstrate his exceptional finesse on the cello, in a performance of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, one of the all-time greatest works for cello, engaging in an in-depth dialogue with the orchestra. Richard Strauss had a knack for bringing fictional characters to life in symphonic poems, such as Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche. Enjoy an evening of melodious stories, with the cello in the starring role!
