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 impressive setting of Schönbrunn Palace and its beautiful baroque gardens, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.

Since 2008 the Vienna Philharmonic has provided an outstanding experience for the audience. In the recent years the orchestra has been conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, Valery Gergiev, Franz Welser-Möst, Daniel Barenboim, Christoph Eschenbach and Zubin Mehta. Among the previous guest soloists were: Renée Fleming, Lang Lang, Rudolf Buchbinder, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Anna Netrebko, Yuja Wang, Jonas Kaufmann and Igor Levit. It is Sony Classical's tenth release of the Summer Night Concert.


The tradition of the Vienna Philharmonic goes back to 1842 when Otto Nicolai conducted a Grand Concert with all members of the imperial "Hof-Operntheater". This event was originally called "Philharmonic Academy" and is regarded as the origin of the orchestra. Since its founding the orchestra is managed by the administrative committee - a democratically elected body - and works artistically, organizationally, and financially autonomously. All decisions are reached on a democratic basis during the general meeting of all members.


Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st-century ambassador for the cello. Performing internationally with many of the world's foremost conductors and instrumentalists. Committed to exploring and expanding the cello repertoire, Capuçon performs an extensive array of works each season and regularly premieres new commissions. In the 2021/22 season, Capuçon appears with, amongst others, the philharmonic orchestras of Vienna/Alain Altinoglu, Munich/Giedre Slekyte and New York/Yu Long; the Concertgebouworkest/Myung-whun Chung, Cleveland Orchestra/Michael Tilson Thomas and Mariinsky/Valerie Gergiev. He is Artist-in-Residence at the Paris Philharmonie as well as the Wiener Konzerthaus. In addition, Capuçon plays at festivals worldwide, including the Enescu, Rostropovich, Prague Spring, St. Denis and Evian festivals.


Andris Nelsons is Music Director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Gewandhauskapellmeister of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. These two positions, in addition to his leadership of a pioneering alliance between both institutions, have firmly established Grammy Award-winning Nelsons as one of the most renowned and innovative conductors on the international scene today.

Andris Nelsons first worked with the Vienna Philharmonic in October 2010 and has been a regular and invariably welcome guest since then, not only at the orchestra's subscription concerts in the Vienna Musikverein and at the Salzburg Festival but also on tours of Asia, the United States and Europe. So far he has appeared more than eighty times on the podium of the Vienna Philharmonic. Lately, he conducted the prestigious New Year's Concert 2020.
