About

Riccardo Muti chose to celebrate his 75th birthday with a programme at the 2016 Salzburg Festival featuring two masterworks from the Austro-German tradition that had both been premiered by the Wiener Philharmoniker under the direction of their respective composers: Bruckner’s Symphony No.2 and Richard Strauss’s Orchestral Suite Der Bürger als Edelmann. Alongside celebrated pianist Gerhard Oppitz is violinist Rainer Küchl, on the eve of his retirement from the Wiener Philharmoniker following a remarkable 45 years of service.

“… It was an extraordinary performance that Riccardo Muti and the Philharmonic bestowed upon the work, one possessing all the qualities that have made Bruckner’s symphonic cosmos unique to this day.” – Salzburger Nachrichten, August 2016

“… In this performance … there was also a silvery translucency in Muti’s reading which was utterly seductive.”
 – Bachtrack on Der Bürger als Edelmann, August 2016
