FYI Haitnik this Saturday, Aug.31

FYI,FWW:

On Saturday, 31 August, 11am Central European Time, CET, ( 5 am US EDT ), MEDICI TV will be broadcasting the video stream live of what I understand will be Haitink's penultimate concert:

https://www.medici.tv/en/concerts/berna ... -bruckner/

Emanuel Ax | Pianist

Wiener Philharmoniker
Bernard Haitink | Conductor

Ludwig van Beethoven, Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58
Anton Bruckner, Symphony No. 7 in E Major, WAB 107

Venue: Grosses Festspielhaus (Salzburg, Austria)

One can hope it will be free VOD for awhile after the live broadcast.Medici site currently gives no indication one way or other I could find.

Love to be there for that. 3 forces I admire: Haitink, Ax, VPO. 2 top works.

As hoped, free VOD now : https://www.medici.tv/en/concerts/berna ... -bruckner/

Multi-hued,subtly shaded , transcendent Beethoven PC # 4 , even thru Internet sound,the way I like this concerto presented, my fav of the composer’s five PC’s. Emanuel Ax just great.

Interesting encore : Chopin’s 3rd Waltz .

Does the VPO governing group choose guest artists , as well as conductors ?

Treat to hear VPO play the Bruckner symphony I do listen to, # 7, especially on such an occasion. Haitnik blows a kiss to the woodwinds, brass at the end of second mov. As I recall, Kurt Masur chose this Bruckner symphony for his NYPO debut as Music Director ca. 1992 (?).

Haitnik 100 times with VPO ; wonder what was discussed at rehearsal about the works ? Appears VPO now includes at least 5 women.

Who else? Undoubtedly the conductor is consulted or may have made a request, but the VPO chooses who to hire. Emanuel Ax lives in New York and I believe hasn't played very often in Europe, so most likely it was Haitink who chose him, with the VPO's agreement.
