Wiener Philharmoniker & Andris Nelsons

The time-honoured Wiener Philharmoniker joins forces with pioneering Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons, seeing excellence and experience come together in this one-of-a-kind concert. Written in 1971 by the ‘decadent’ major 20th century Soviet composer Sofia Gubaidulina, Fairytale Poem is set against works by two key modern Russian composers. Symphony No.9 by Shostakovich emanates sarcasm rather than the militaristic acclaim expected by Stalin while Symphony No.6 by Dvořák was originally intended by Hans Richter for the Wiener forces.
