An array of musical stars converges in Leipzig to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Johann
Sebastian Bach taking up his appointment as Kantor at the city’s iconic Thomaskirche – a post that
he occupied for more than a quarter of a century, covering a period in which he created many of his
greatest works. Among those performing on a special open-air stage in the city’s market square are
pianist Lang Lang, violinist Daniel Hope, cellist Sophie Kauer and oboist Albrecht Mayer, joined by
the Thomanerchor and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig under current Thomaskantor Andreas

Joe Hisaishi, a living legend of film music, directs the Wiener Symphoniker in a concert presenting
music from some of his best-known film scores alongside his Second Symphony. The composer of
music for over 100 films, including many for Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli, Hisaishi fuses multiple
styles – from minimalism and electronics to Western and Japanese classical traditions – to create an
inimitable sound world all his own. This concert, filmed in late March 2023, marks a historic
moment, as he presents his music, including the Symphonic Suite from “Princess Mononoke”, in the
sold-out Golden Hall of Vienna’s legendary Musikverein.

After her critically acclaimed Rachmaninoff marathon in New York, Yuja Wang brings her
characteristic sparkling virtuosity and quicksilver musicality to all the composer’s works for piano
and orchestra in Los Angeles, with support from Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil. Filmed over a
series of concerts in the Walt Disney Hall in February 2023, the performances offer a dazzling
showcase of the pianist’s artistry in works that span almost all of the composer’s career: from the
early passion of the first concerto, through the sweeping romance and swirling intensity of the
second and third, to the mercurial brilliance of two later works: the fourth concerto and the
Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
