The Vienna Philharmonic performed its annual Summer Night Concert Schönbrunn, an open air event with free admission, in the unique ambience of the gardens of Schönbrunn Palace on Thursday, June 2, 2011. This year's concert was conducted by Valery Gergiev, Principal Conducor and Artistic Director of the Mariinski Theater in St. Petersburg. Benjamin Schmid offered a virtuoso performance as soloist in Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 1 and the Vienna State Opera Ballet Association danced to the music of Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition", in the choreography of Gregor Hatala. The victims of the natural and environmental catastrophe in Japan were commemorated with Jean Sibelius' "Scene with Cranes". The huge audience was also treated to two encores by Johann Strauss, "Wiener Blut" and "Vom Donaustrande". The concert was broadcast live or time-delayed by more than 60 television networks worldwide.
