Concerts with Sir Antonio Pappano and Christian Thielemann

On April 13, 2012, in the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Vienna Philharmonic performed under the baton of Sir Antonio Pappano not only Joseph Haydn's Symphony in E-flat Major, Hob. I:22 and the 4th Symphony by Johannes Brahms, but also premiered a work by Jörg Widmann: "Teufel Amor, Symphonic Hymn after Schiller". This program was repeated for the 9th Philharmonic Subscription Concert on April 14/15, 2012.

The 4th Philharmonic Soirée on April 20, 2012, featured Christian Thielemann conducting a Schumann Program which included the Overture, Scherzo and Finale in E major, op. 52; the Symphony No. 1 in B-flat major, op. 38 (the only work which Schumann personally conducted with our orchestra on January 1, 1847); the Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra in A-minor, op. 131, featuring Rainer Küchl as soloist; and the Symphony No. 4 in D minor, op 120. This program was repeated one day later as part of the cycle "Das Goldene Musikvereinsabonnement II".

Also in April 2012, the Vienna Philharmonic made an 8-day European tour performing the compositions presented on the 9th Subscription Concerts and 4th Philharmonic Soirée. Christian Tielemann conducted on April 12th, 13th, 27th, and 30th in Paris, Luxemburg, Baden-Baden and Athens respectively, while Sir Antonio Pappano took the baton for concerts in Cologne and Athens on April 25th and 29th. Pappano also led a young person's concert on the morning of April 29th in Athens, where he conducted and elucidated the Haydn Symphony and the last two movements from Brahms' Fourth Symphony.
