Our last project about the Schönberg Fest Gala Concert with Maestro Zubin Mehta was streamed on Saturday, March 16th, and is NOW AVAILABLE until Monday, March 25th, via Video-on-demand on 

The Schönberg Fest in March celebrates 15 years of the Arnold Schönberg Center in Vienna, which opened its doors for the first time in March 1998. The concert also celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Ensemble Wiener Collage.

This gala concert took place on Saturday March 16th at 19:30 CEST and included the highlight of the Schönberg Fest: a concert with Maestros Zubin Mehta and René Staar conducting members of the Vienna Philharmonic and the Ensemble Wiener Collage. This special program included the famous Chamber Symphony op. 9 by Arnold Schönberg as well as new works by Stankovski, Sánchez-Chiong, Deutsch, Wysocki, and Staar, many of which are world premieres. Maestro Zubin Mehta is conducting this concert in recognition of his first public concert in Vienna (Brahms-Saal, Musikverein) as a student of Hans Swarowski in 1958 with the same Schoenberg piece.
