Since the death of Herbert von Karajan in 1989, the prestigious Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra's concerts around Ascension Day (15 August) have firmly been in the hands of Riccardo Muti. Always sold out, they are among the highlights of every festival summer. For this year's concert and on occasion of his 80th birthday, the maestro was acclaimed for his interpretation of Beethoven's Missa solemnis, a piece he has never conducted before. "Muti is a master in conveying extremes: monumentality, where it is compositionally intended, and highest internalization alternate with each other in a dense interplay." (FAZ) "Muti mastered the work and presented it as stringently as perhaps no one else can do it today." (Die Presse)
