Georges Prêtre's collaboration with the Vienna Philharmonic extended over five decades. He celebrated his debut on the podium of the Vienna Philharmonic with the waltz from Charles Gounod's opera "Faust" at the 23rd Vienna Philharmonic Ball on January 17, 1963. Nearly 50 years later to the day, on January 13, 2013, he conducted his last Philharmonic concert with compositions by Beethoven, Stravinsky and Ravel. There was a hiatus between 1963 and 1989 before a series of performances of "Tosca" at the 1989 Salzburg Festival laid the cornerstone for a continuous artistic partnership which encompassed about 70 concerts.
