Joe Hisaishi in Vienna
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 an 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 – an unmissable event!
