The second weekend of the Grafenegg Festival opens with the premiere of the «Babylon-Suite» by Jörg Widmann, based on the opera «Babylon» which premiered at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich in 2012. Conducting that celebrated opera premiere was Kent Nagano, recognised as one of the leading conductors of contemporary music. Afterwards Jörg Widmann performs as soloist in Mozart’s moving Clarinet Concerto. Gustav’s Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, with its famous soprano solo – sung here by Camilla Tilling – brings this evening in Grafenegg to a close.

The concert will be recorded and broadcast on 26 September at 7.30 p.m. on Radio Österreich 1 and on 12 October at 8 pm on Radio Niederösterreich.
