Every year the Berliner Philharmoniker invites artists for the orchestra’s traditional birthday concert on May 1st. In 2012, the guests were Gustavo Dudamel, conducting, and Gautier Capuçon (cello) and was performed at the Spanische Hofreitschule in Vienna - A spectacular and unique setting for a thrilling and historic music event. The Spanish Riding School has, to this day, a long standing relationship with music: The famous “Musikverein” was founded here in 1812. Furthermore, Haydn’s musical career started in its back garden!
