The ’All Saints Day Concert’ - besides the New Year´s concert the most important Viennese music event - from the Musikvereinssaal, Vienna from 1986 with sacred music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Schubert.
Superb soloists like Karita Mattila, Marjana Lipovsek, Robert Holl, Jerry Hadley and Jorge Pita, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Vienna State Opera Chorus under the baton of maestro Abbado.
“The Schubert Mass may tax Abbado's greatest fans. Yet the Mozart sequence with Karita Mattila is revelatory, camerawork for the Brahms Second Piano Concerto as fluid and imaginative as the Abbado-Pollini partnership...He combines a phenomenal technique with a poetic temperament. Wonderful.”
