"In the long term society can only improve by means of cultural and educational policy."

Johannes Wildner has studied Viennese musical tradition from his earliest formative years, conveyed it as a violinist and even more so as a conductor in Europe and the Far East.  He has been the Director of the Opera Festival in Gars (Austria) since 2013, and Professor of Conducting at the ViennaMusicUniversity since 2014.   On the occasion of his concert "Klassik-Hits im Goldenen Saal" (Classical Hits in the Gold Hall of Vienna's Musikverein) he spoke with Walter Weidringer of the Musikverein magazine about music, masterpieces, the demanding Viennese school - and why cultural and educational policy is the only means with which to improve our society.  Please click here for the full interview in German.
