About the Event

Experience classical music like never before in this astonishing performance of the masterwork by Mahler at the remarkable Schloss Grafenegg.

Schloss Grafenegg


For more than 30 years, Schloss Grafenegg has been a setting for events in a truly unique atmosphere. Its cultural programme attracts thousands of visitors every year, and Advent in Grafenegg has become a Lower Austrian institution. Building on this history, the Schloss Grafenegg estate is combined with one of the most ambitious cultural projects in Austria: an open‐air stage and a new concert hall should provide the necessary space for Schloss Grafenegg to establish itself as a unique cultural centre at an international level.

Conductor: Rattle, Sir Simon

Rattle was born in Liverpool, and studied at Liverpool College. He learned the piano and violin, but his early work with orchestras was as a percussionist. He entered the Royal Academy of Music in London in 1971. There he was able to frequently conduct, and in 1974, his graduation year, he won the John Player Conductor Competition. After organising and conducting a stunning account of Mahler's Second Symphony whilst still at the Academy, he was talent spotted by the music agent Martin Campell‐White (source: [1]) and has since been managed by him.

Soprano: Alder, Lousie
