Canadian superstar violinist Alexandre Da Costa and his 1701 Stradivarius violin join Zelman Symphony to celebrate the magic of the era of the great Viennese balls, combining tradition and elegance. This mesmerising program includes immortal works by both Johann Strauss Jnr and his father, Fritz Kreisler, Erich Korngold, and others.

Alexandre Da Costa’s Stradivarius in Vienna is both unique and traditional, presenting the soul of this much-loved music in an accessible and refined way, and has been performed internationally.

In order to continue the tradition of the great Viennese concerts and of the great composers that have been strongly influenced there, Alexandre Da Costa conducts the orchestra with his bow as Stehgeiger according to the technique of ‘Play and Conduct’ that he masters to perfection.

Rest assured that you will enjoy this fabulous journey to the Austrian capital in the company of conductor-soloist, Alexandre Da Costa.
