With this open-air concert in Schönbrunn, the Vienna Philharmonic wishes to provide all Viennese, as well as visitors to the city, with a special musical experience in the impressive setting of Schönbrunn Palace and its beautiful baroque gardens, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.

Since 2008 the Vienna Philharmonic has provided an outstanding experience for the audience. In recent years, the orchestra has been conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, Franz Welser-Möst, Daniel Barenboim, Christoph Eschenbach, Zubin Mehta and Andris Nelsons. Among the previous guest soloists were: Renée Fleming, Lang Lang, Rudolf Buchbinder, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Yuja Wang, Jonas Kaufmann, Igor Levit and Gautier Capuçon. This is Sony Classical's eleventh release of the Summer Night Concert.

This year's SNC exclusively presented popular melodies from French composers, including musical highlights from Bizet to Ravel, Berlioz to Saint-Säens to Gounod.

The soloist on the evening's program was the Latvian Mezzo soprano Elīna Garanča, who performed the famous Habanera from Carmen, “Mon cœur s’ouvre à ta voix” by Camille Saint-Säens (Samson et Dalila), and Gounod's "O ma lyre immortelle" from Sapho.
