Portraits in the 2022/23 season

Jewgenij Kissin

In his portrait concerts, which Jewgenij Kissin will perform for the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in 2022/23, the master pianist passionately commits to Sergei Rachmaninoff. Strong emotions have a deeper effect after phases of silence.

Isabelle Faust

The Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna dedicates a portrait to Isabelle Faust, in which the German violinist presents herself in a highly multifaceted way in five programmes: as a soloist with orchestras of modern and historical practice, as a chamber musician, in a concerto for violin and voice and in a solo recital with the baroque violin.

Igor Levit

After the strong impression that Igor Levit set at the Musikverein Festival 2022, the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna is dedicating a comprehensive portrait to him in 2022/23.

Elim Chan

A new face in the Golden Hall: In her portrait at the Musikverein, the highly acclaimed conductor Elim Chan, from Hong Kong, conducts the ORF RSO Vienna, the Wiener Symphoniker and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.

Lorenzo Viotti

Lorenzo Viotti, born in 1990, is one of the most sought-after conductors of his generation in opera and concert. For him, it is less about being in demand than asking the right questions: questions essential for the future of classical music. The series of portraits that Lorenzo Viotti is creating for the Musikverein in 2022/23 shows his passion for facing these challenges.
