Concert Series: Daniel Barenboim on the occasion of his 80th birthday
Daniel Barenboim, honorary member of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna, is also celebrating his 80th birthday, with a whole series of concerts at the Musikverein. Six concerts with works from Beethoven to Boulez and from Mozart to Manoury, reflect the unique spectrum of a universal musical personality. And what’s more, they invite you to follow Daniel Barenboim’s vision: that you can learn from music for life.
Composer in Focus: Mark Andre
When composing, Mark Andre always keeps an eye on the fragile structure of the coming and going of sounds, on all levels. In a comprehensive portrait that the Musikverein dedicates to the German-French composer, this can be experienced in a wide range of works – from miniatures for solo instruments to chamber music and large orchestral works, such as the one written by Mark Andre on behalf of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna.
