The Grafenegg Festival has rapidly become one of the most renowned classical music festivals in the world over the past ten years - and no wonder: World class soloists, their very own festival-weathered festival orchestra, and the spectacular setting of the festival stage Wolkenturm amidst the park of the Grafenegg castle, situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Wachau.
The festival is traditionally preceded by their annual Midsummer Night's Gala. In 2016, the orchestra under the baton of Yutaka Sado has invited Olga Peretyatko, Rudolf Buchbinder and Bryn Terfel to join them in showcasing works by Gounod, Bizet, Elgar, Weber, Verdi, Donizetti, Offenbach, Leigh and Lehár - among them Elgar's famous Pomp and Circumstance. Now image that music sounding from the spectacular stage throughout the beautiful scenery on a warm summer night, crowned by a firework - and you have the Midsummer Night's Gala.
The Gala will be released on DVD in August.
