They’ve been regular guests at LUCERNE FESTIVAL since 1957: the Vienna Philharmonic, who this summer celebrate the 60th anniversary of their stage debut here. Many memories of unforgettable musical highlights will be awakened, of appearances with Karl Böhm, Herbert von Karajan, and Leonard Bernstein; Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, and Pierre Boulez; Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Sir Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink, and Daniel Barenboim. This orchestra’s magic is based on its distinctive sonic identity, which in the course of its 175-year history has evolved and been passed on from one generation to the next. In fact, the Viennese “sonic style” has even been researched and taught at a special university institute devoted to the topic. It involves the brighter colors of the winds, the covering of the percussion instruments, and certain schools of string playing. All of which will again be a cause of admiration when the “Wiener,” under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, perform music by three composers – Brahms, Mozart, and Beethoven – all of whom chose Vienna as their home.
