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.

Subsequently, he was engaged by the Zurich Opera House, served as Music Director at the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo, was Music Director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and has since 2008 been Principal Guest Conductor of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. A highly sought‐after conductor, other engagements have led Honeck to guest conduct numerous preeminent orchestras as well as opera houses.

Gautier Capuçon has dedicated himself to the cello since he was only five years old, and is particularly enthusiastic about chamber music making. He records a great deal with his brother, renowned violinist Renaud Capuçon, and collaborates with numerous other celebrated artists such as Marta Argerich, Daniel Barenboim, Leonidas Kavakos, Mikhail Pletnev, Vadim Repin, Jean‐Yves Thibaudet, Maxim Vengerov, etc.

Established in 1896, the brilliant American orchestra prides itself on a rich history of the world’s finest conductors and musicians: PSO has been led by internationally recognized conductors such as Lorin Maazel, André Previn, and Mariss Jansons, who have been maintaining and enhancing PSO’s high standard of excellence. Since autumn 2008, the Orchestra’s Music Director and Principal Conductor has been Manfred Honeck, with Leonard Slatkin as its Principal Guest Conductor. For over a hundred years, PSO has been an essential part of Pittsburgh’s cultural landscape and one of the finest representatives of American orchestral excellence. With a long and distinguished history of touring, both domestically and overseas, the PSO has earned critical acclaim for each tour. The orchestra has also achieved an illustrious reputation for its myriad recordings. Its disc featuring works by Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky, with soloist Yo‐Yo Ma and under the baton of Lorin Maazel, won a Grammy Award.
