This was the first ever live TV broadcast from the Carinthian Summer Festival, filmed at the famous Abbey Church at Ossiach. But for the music lover, the concert is more than worth treasuring for musical reasons, featuring, as it does, the young Claudio Abbado conducting a performance of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with two of Italy's leading singers. The rest of the programme comprises two magnificent examples of Vivaldi's 'concerti con titoli.
