The Vienna Philharmonic mourns the passing of Bernard Haitink. Our honorary member has conducted the Vienna Philharmonic more than 100 times since 1972. As part of our 2019 joint tour, he conducted the last official concerts of his rich career. We are very grateful to have been able to experience this together. They were deeply moving and unforgettable moments. Our thoughts are with his family.
