Riccardo Muti has been one of the leading conductors at the Salzburg Festival for more than 50 years, as this live recording of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 in B minor, op. 74 (‘Pathétique’)impressively demonstrates. The work was performed at the 2022 Salzburg Festival and is now presented as the 2023 Special Annual Edition, which the Vienna Philharmonic is dedicating to Maestro Muti as a tribute to his unique relationship with our orchestra. This began at the 1971 Salzburg Festival with a performance of Gaetano Donizetti’s Don Pasquale, and led to more than 500 joint appearances in the opera house and concert hall in the intervening 52 years since. An intensive artistic partnership and friendship has developed over this half-century, marked by countless highlights and unforgettable moments.
