The 2012/2013 season began for the Vienna Philharmonic with two concerts in one of the most famous concert series in the world - the "BBC Proms" in London's Albert Hall with a seating capacity of 6,000 persons. On September 6th, the program from August 25/27 with Bernard Hatinik and Murray Perahia was repeated. On the following day, the Dutch maestro, who conducted our orchestra for the first time 40 years ago, led a performance of Joseph Haydn's Symphony in D major, Hob. I:104 ("Salomon") and Richard Strauss' "Alpine Symphony" op. 64, which was broadcast for television in 30 different countries. The encore was Johann Strauss' waltz "Voices of Spring", op. 410).
The week thereafter provided our first encounter with the forty-year-old Russian conductor, Vladimir Jurowski. On September 12th in the Theater an der Wien, he conducted Robert Schumann's Overture to "Manfred", op. 115, "L'Ascension" (Four Symphonic Meditations for Orchestra) by Olivier Messiaen as well as Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "Manfred" Symphony in B minor, op. 58.
On the next day this program was repeated for a Lucerne Festival concert. Both of the next concerts were conducted by Bernard Haitink. On September 14th, the Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang, winner of this year's "Credit Suisse Young Artists Award", played the Violin Concerto in D minor, op. 47, by Jean Sibelius. Following the intermission, Strauss' "Alpine Symphony" was performed. The conclusion of the Philharmonic participation in this year's Lucerne Festival took place on September 15, when the Beethoven/Bruckner program from Salzburg and London was again performed.
