Jasper Johns, MoMA, NYNew York Central Park

It’s really fantastic to be back to the USA for a three week tour with Vienna Philharmonic! “Vienna – city of dreams” – is the title of a huge festival focusing on our orchestra and viennese arts and culture here in New York.
Tomorrow we start with Beethovens 9th symphony. After 3 more concerts at Carnegie Hall (including Wozzeck and Salome concertant) we are switching to warmer California (Costa Mesa, St. Barbara, Berkeley) before comig back to the last concerts at Carnegie Hall again. The conductors are Franz Welser-Möst, Lorin Maazel, Andris Nelsons, Christoph Eschenbach and Zubin Mehta. WOW!
