An evening of Viennese all-time classical favourites is presented on DVD. Here two world-renowned soloists are joined by a world-class orchestra under an eminent conductor to provide a first rate recording! Recorded live at the Carnegie Hall New York in October 2006, the programme includes Mozart's beloved Piano Concerto No. 17, performed by acclaimed pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, and selections from the composer's opera Le Nozze di Figaro with soprano Dorothea Röschmann, the “Light Cavalry Overture” by Franz von Suppé, and to cap off the evening, “Artist's Life,” “Annen-Polka”, and the Overture to Die Fledermaus by the Waltz King, Johann Strauss Jr. Long considered one of America’s greatest orchestras, The Cleveland Orchestra has joined the ranks of the world’s most celebrated symphonic ensembles. It has a long standing commitment to the internationally successful conductor Franz Welser-Möst. Multi-Grammy Award winner Leif Ove Andsnes is rapidly becoming known for his Mozart interpretations and Dorothea Röschmann has been charting her successful progress through the international opera scene for the past decade.
