Notes & Reviews:

In one of the most unusual concerts of recent decades, Nikolaus Harnoncourt launched the 2009 Salzburg Festival with an exploration of the dance element in Australian music. Dances by Schubert and Joseph Straub provided an introduction to the magnificent "Dance of Death" that emerged from the octogenarian maestro's hands in Schubert's C major Symphony ("Great"). The perfect orchestra for these authentically Viennese and yet universally valid work was, of course, the Vienna Philharmonic, "An incomparably rich-toned interpretation"-(Munchner Merkur).
