Exclusive: Wiener Philharmoniker, Christian Thielemann, Dieter Flury

The Wiener Philharmoniker present an exclusive, previously unreleased live recording on IDAGIO. This release features the farewell concert for Dieter Flury, the orchestra’s principal flute from 1981 to 2017, only available on IDAGIO. Recorded live at the Musikverein in Vienna on 11 June 2017 and conducted by Christian Thielemann, the repertoire includes Jörg Widmann’s “Flûte en suite” for flute and orchestra as well as Johannes Brahms’ “Akademische Festouvertüre” and his Symphony No. 4 in E minor.Read more…

Dieter Flury says about this memorable concert:

“My last performance in the long series of subscription concerts that I played in as a member of the Wiener Philharmoniker, is characterized by tremendous gratitude. In Jörg Widmann's "Flûte en suite," I have the richness of sound and colour from the orchestral groups, which Widmann lets speak so imaginatively with the solo flute, as well as enjoying immediate, spontaneous music-making with Christian Thielemann. As a soloist, I got to experience his musical flair and his outstanding conducting skills more immediately than ever before: making music in the Goldener Saal – I can hardly imagine anything more beautiful. My encore, the Sarabande from Partita BWV 1013, is simply meant as a thank-you to Johann Sebastian Bach, who inspired Widmann's suite to a great extent."
