When the nights in Vienna get lovely and balmy, it's time for a very special concert from the city's most famous orchestra. The Vienna Philharmonic, the greatest classical music, and palatial dreamlike scenery – this really is a beautiful way to spend an evening. The Summer Night Concert at Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna is really one of the most heart-stopping things on the classical calendar enjoyed by around 100,000 concert goers and picnickers in the park, and also television viewers around the world.  In 2017, Maestro Christoph Eschenbach took to the podium to lead this famous orchestra, with star soprano Renée Fleming taking to the stage. The night featured music by Tchaikovsky, Dvorak and Rachmaninov and more with the theme "fairy tales and myths" Here's a taste of the enchanting mood as the sun set over the palace garden
