It was the shot that shocked the world. On June 28, 1914, the assassination of the Austrian Archduke Franz-Ferdinand in Sarajevo set in motion the diplomatic confrontations that led to the outbreak of the greatest war the world had ever seen.

One hundred years on, the Vienna Philharmonic, representing old Austria, will perform with the opera chorus of the Sarajevo National Theatre near the site of the fateful event. Franz Welser-MŲst will conduct and the event will be broadcast live in France and Germany. No repertoire is specified in the press release; expect Beethoven.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) will join the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of Sarajevo and public TV channels of Bosnia-Herzegovina, France and Germany in commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of World War One with a unique concert in Sarajevo in June 2014.

The performance, involving the Opera Choir of the National Theatre of Sarajevo, will take place on Saturday 28 June 2014, exactly 100 years after the assassination of Archduke Franz-Ferdinand von Habsburg-Este.The programme will feature composers from Austria, Germany and France and will take place in the Vijećnica, the old Bosnian-Herzegovinian National and University Library and former Town Hall currently under renovation. The concert will be relayed on video screens outside the building.

BHRT, ZDF and France Tťlťvisions will co-produce a live TV programme from inside the Vijećnica, with the EBU transmitting the signal live to TV and radio channels worldwide for live or deferred broadcast.

The concert, led by renowned conductor Franz Welser-MŲst, offers the people of Sarajevo and a worldwide audience a live tribute to peace and international friendship.

It not only commemorates a significant moment in Europeís history, it also marks the birth of a new Europe and a new century. Memories of the past will be honoured by hopes for a peaceful future for a reunited continent.

In the lead-up to the centenary, the EBU is leading a collaborative push among Members to create a rich portfolio of thematic co-productions across TV and radio platforms. The concert is one of several events being coordinated.
