The Tonkunstler Orchestra of Lower Austria played its first concert in Grafenegg 50 years ago to this day. To mark this anniversary, Grafenegg's now resident orchestra and its Music Director Yutaka Sado perform a dazzling concert at the Wolkenturm. The programme promises to provide an exhilarating evening, replete with melodies that are sure to continue ringing in the ears of the audience on their journey home. Excerpts from «Porgy and Bess» and «West Side Story» feature, along with «Rhapsody in Blue», which will showcase Denis Kozhukhin as one of the best pianists of the younger generation.
