Product Description

 

Sony Classical is pleased to announce the release of “The Sarajevo Concert” by the Vienna Philharmonic under Franz Welser-Möst internationally on April 3rd 2015.

On June 28th, 2014, the Vienna Philharmonic played under Franz Welser-Möst the Concert in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, commemorating the Centenary of the Assassination at Sarajevo on June 28th, 1914. The concert took place in the National Library of Sarajevo, metres from the site where Austro-Hungarian heir Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated
exactly 100 years previously.

This invitation-only event was transmitted by EUROVISION to TV and radio broadcasters around the world as part of a coproduction involving EBU Members BHRT (Bosnia & Herzogovina), ZDF (Germany) and France Télévisions.

Performance fees were waived for the concert, which featured a musical program with strong connections to the historical events of 1914-1918, inviting reflection, analysis and remembrance of an era-defining conflict.

The concert was relayed free to giant screens outside the VijeÌ_ÌÇåÎÌàÌ_ÌÇ_Ì_ÌÇÌ___Ì_ÌÇÌ___Ì_ÌÇÌ___nica to a large public audience.

The New York Times wrote: “If there was a moment that captured better than any other the light and the dark in Sarajevo’s centenary weekend, marking 100 years since the events here that unleashed the demons of World War I, it came with the opening bars of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.”

As the music of the Vienna Philharmonic soared through the great atrium of Sarajevo’s rebuilt City Hall, and from a giant screen erected for a crowd gathered on the opposite side of the Miljacka River, it was possible for a few moments to forget the more recent outbursts of sectarian recrimination that have clouded the commemorations of the assassinations on June 28, 1914.”
