Katie Derham introduces the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performing its Summer Evening Concert in the grounds of Vienna's great baroque jewel, the Schonbrunn Palace. The celebrated Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel presents an exciting mix of orchestral showpieces by Tchaikovsky, Borodin, Ponchielli, Richard Strauss and Gimenez. Dancers from the Vienna State Opera Ballet bring Debussy's great depiction of the sea, La Mer, to life together with Mussorgsky's exotic Dance of the Persian Slaves. The concert ends with music by the Viennese waltz king Johann Strauss.
