For one-night only, Christoph Eschenbach leads the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in a evening of European classics, with Eschenbach as solo pianist for Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major (K488).
There is perhaps no other musical ensemble more closely associated with the history and tradition of European classical music than the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Since the orchestra’s inception in 1842 by Otto Nicolai, it has fascinated prominent composers and conductors as well as audiences worldwide with its homogenous musical style that is carefully bequeathed through generations. In 2014, the VPO received the coveted Birgit Nilsson Prize for outstanding achievements and major contributions to classical music and opera, and the Herbert von Karajan Music Prize.
Christoph Eschenbach is a distinguished Grammy Award-winning guest conductor who is sought-after by orchestras and opera houses around the world. A piano prodigy who won many competitions as a young musician, Eschenbach made his conducting debut in 1975 with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Now, currently serving as a music director for various orchestras internationally over the course of his career, Eschenbach serves as music director of the Kennedy Center of Performing Arts and the Washington National Symphony Orchestra.
