The Israel Philharmonic and with music director Zubin Mehta began their Fall Tour in “acoustic heaven:” the Grosser Musikvereinsaal in Vienna.

No concert hall is more celebrated for its incredible sound and beautiful decorations. The program included Hindemith “Mathis der Maler”, Mozart “Sinfonia Concertante” with IPO concertmasters Ilya Konovalov and Roman Spitzer and Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra”.

Extra seats were placed on the stage to accommodate the standing-room only audience and the orchestra went on to perform 2 encores after the Strauss.
