takt1 is delighted to be a part of the Vienna Symphony great festival traditions: after broadcasting their New Year’s concert, takt1 presents a live stream of this year’s Easter concert by the Vienna Symphony at the Vienna Konzerthaus.

The programme focuses on French music from around 1900. It opens with Paul Dukas’ “Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, in which the bassoons summon an initially helpful broom to carry some water for the apprentice – but things soon get out of hand. The magical incantations are followed by Maurice Ravel’s “Tzigane” and the second orchestral suite from “Daphnis et Chloé.” After the interval, Lahav Shani leads the Viennese ensemble through two symphonic poems: Ernest Chausson’s “Poème” und Ravel’s “La Valse”. Featuring Renaud Capuçon on solo violin, a former artist in residence with the orchestra who knows them well.

Tune in for the live stream on 21 April at 19:30! All takt1 live streams are available as video on demand after the concerts.
