50 Years Euroradio: Johannes Wildner conducts an anniversary concert in London – Nov. 27th

For fifty years now, Euroradio has served to continually further the sharing and exchanging of music within the European Broadcasting Union. To mark this momentous occasion, Johannes Wildner returns to the rostrum of the BBC Concert Orchestra to conduct works by Dobrinka Tabakova, Britten, Mozart and Beethoven. The concert will take place on November 27th at St. Luke’s, and the radio stations forming the EBU will broadcast the event live.

Johannes Wildner at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Duesseldorf - 14 and 21 Oct 2017

On 14 October 2017, the Austrian conductor Johannes Wildner will replace Axel Kobel upon short notice in the revival of Mozart's "The Abduction from the Seraglio" at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Duesseldorf. He will also conduct the 2nd performance on 21 October 2017.

Concert: Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester hosting Johannes Wildner in Flensburg and Haderslev – Sept. 14th and 15th

With a busy, but highly successful festival summer under his belt (an open-air “The Magic Flute” at the Oper Burg Gars that won highest praises and three operetta concerts “Operetta made in Austria” in Gmunden and Vienna), Johannes Wildner is travelling to Denmark again.
For the second time this year, the Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester has invited him as guest conductor; this time, the programme promises delicacies such as Glinka’s overture from “Ruslan und Ludmila”, Shostakovich’s second violin concerto with Guro Kleven Hagen as soloist, and Brahms’ third symphony.

Open air, unplugged: Johannes Wildner and “The Magic Flute” at the Oper Burg Gars – from July 13th

“The Magic Flute” is, according to artistic director and conductor Johannes Wildner, “the starting shot for the European Enlightenment society that spans the past 200 years.” Whether Enlightenment and the associated ideals are still applicable to the deep crisis that Europe currently finds itself in – that is the question that director Kurt-Josef Schildknecht asks in his staging just as Wildner and the rising stars in the fresh, international, ensemble ask it in their interpretation of Mozart’s music.
Details regarding cast, performance dates, shuttles from Vienna, and more are available at the Oper Burg Gars web site. By the way, the mediaeval Burg Gars is not only the perfect stage for both this opera and the question posed by the production. The castle’s excellent acoustics also make the Oper Burg Gars festival one of the very few that need not and will not use electronic amplification.

 

 

 

World premiere! Johannes Wildner presents Friedemann Katt’s “De rerum natura” – May 28th

To celebrate a hundred years of Lions Club International, the Lions Club Ried is causing a stir with a noteworthy world premiere: “De Rerum Natura – Of the Nature of Things”, Franz Xaver Frenzel’s broadest work so far, and his most comprehensive. The composer describes the work as “philosophical – romantic – modern; yet, just like a baroque-era painted ceiling, entertaining.” The Festival-Sinfonietta Orchestra Linz, with Johannes Wildner conducting, will present this world premiere on May 28th at Ried im Innkreis.
