The Summer Night Concert is an annual open-air event which has been held since 2008. The park of Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna is the magical setting for the concert. For the first time since the coronavirus pandemic, the concert was able to take place again with a full audience. The Vienna Philharmonic devoted this year’s program to the theme of the Musical Heritage of Europe with two premieres: the contemporary Latvian composer Arturs Maskats’ Tango, as well as the Farewell Waltz by prominent Ukrainian composer Mykola Lysenko. The program further included favorites from Beethoven and Rossini to Smetana and Dvořák.
