A Viennese finale to the season

Franz Welser-Möst

Following top positions with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Zurich Opera House, Franz Welser-Möst has been music director of the Vienna State Opera since 2010. Eight years previously he was appointed to the same post with the Cleveland Orchestra, where his contract was subsequently extended to cover the orchestra’s hundredth birthday in 2018. As a guest conductor he regularly collaborates with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester as well as the great symphony orchestras of the USA. Franz Welser-Möst enjoys close ties to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducting their New Year’s Concerts of 2011 and 2013 and accompanying the orchestra to the Lucerne Festival, the BBC Proms as well as the Salzburg Festival. Now he will give his long overdue debut on the rostrum of the Staatskapelle Dresden.

Als Gastdirigent hat Welser-Möst eine besonders enge und produktive Beziehung zu den Wiener Philharmonikern entwickelt. Er stand zweimal am Pult des Neujahrskonzertes und dirigiert das Orchester regelmäßig in Abonnementkonzerten im Wiener Musikverein, bei Gastspielen in Luzern, bei den BBC Proms, bei Tourneen in den USA, Skandinavien und in Japan. Diese besondere Beziehung wurde im Frühjahr 2014 mit der Überreichung des Ehrenrings der Wiener Philharmoniker gewürdigt.

Franz Welser-Möst ist Träger zahlreicher Auszeichnungen und hat CD- und DVD-Aufnahmen vorgelegt, die mehrfach internationale Preise erhielten.

Frank Peter Zimmermann

Acclaimed by the newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung as the »Oistrach of our time«, Frank Peter Zimmermann is a hugely popular violinist whose appearances have been thrilling not only audiences but also critics and fellow musicians for many years. At the world’s top classical venues he performs a highly diverse repertoire ranging from Johann Sebastian Bach to works by classical and romantic composers, as well as contemporary concertos by Brett Dean, Matthias Pintscher and

Augusta Read Thomas. Frank Peter Zimmermann has appeared regularly in concert with the Staatskapelle Dresden since 1992, most recently in January 2010 when he performed Johannes Brahms’s Violin Concerto in the Semperoper, as well as on a tour of Scandinavia, under conductor Neeme Järvi. He plays a Stradivarius from 1711 formerly belonging to the legendary Fritz Kreisler.
