Notes and Editorial Reviews

Grafenegg, home to the world’s best orchestras, singers and musicians is set in the gorgeous wine-country landscape of Lower Austria, the historic castle and beautiful gardens a spectacular setting for music. The Midsummer Night’s Gala takes a musical stroll through Wachau’s romantic landscape while lending top German soprano Elisabeth Kulman, tenor Piotr Beczala or violinist Julia Fischer your ear. Yutaka Sado, one of Japan’s most distinguished conductors, leads the Tonkünstler-Orchester in music of Bizet, Massenet, Saint-Saëns, Sarasate, Verdi, Falla, Kálmán, Lehár and Cole Porter.
