Notes & Reviews:

Sony Classical is proud to release the Summer Night Concert 2013 with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Lorin Maazel, featuring the music of Verdi and Wagner in celebration of their bicentennial anniversaries. This annual open-air event has been held since 2008 on the park grounds of the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria and airs nationwide on PBS's Great Performances. Recorded live on May 30, the program consists of beloved works by Verdi including the Triumphal March from Aida, "La mia letizia infondere" aria from I Lombardi, dances from Otello and the overtures from Luisa Miller and Forza del Destino. These pieces alternate with selections from Wagner's best known works including the Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, the Story of the Holy Grail from Lohengrin and the popular favorite "Ride of the Valkyries" from Die Walküre.

This year's Summer Night Concert was conducted by the legendary Lorin Maazel who has a longstanding association with the Vienna Philharmonic having conducted their celebrated New Year's Eve Concert eleven times. They are joined by Michael Schade, an outstanding tenor who has performed with legendary opera companies around the world including the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala in Milan, the Paris Opera and the Salzburg Festival. With the UNESCO World Heritage setting of the Baroque park of Schönbrunn Palace as the backdrop, the Summer Night Concert adds stunning visuals to the superb musical program.
