What kind of concert can gather a crowd of 100 000 people? Beyoncé definitely. But a classical music concert? Such was the phenomenon witnessed last night in the palace gardens of Schönnbrunn. Vienna’s annual Summer Night Concert is a great and free way to hear one of the world’s best orchestras in action – if you don’t mind standing for a few hours.
Ps. This was actually my view for most of the night. We decided to sit on the hill but soon discovered no one thought to put speakers here. Really Vienna? Half the concert goers couldn’t hear a thing!
