Sommernachts Konzert 2014 (2014 Summer Night Concert). On May 29, 2014 Christoph Eschenbach conducted the Wiener Philharmoniker in the annual Summer Night Concert. Features Lang Lang on piano. The traditional venue for this is the Baroque Park at the Schönbrunn palace in Vienna. Directed for TV by Henning Kasten. Released 2014, has 5.0 dts-HD Master Audio sound. Grade: Help!
If I could only make one more European palace visit, I would go back to Schönbrunn. It's the most interesting and best managed of the royal estates I've seen. The park grounds are delightful, so there could hardly be a more beautiful outdoor venue than this.
