Musikverein, Vienna Reviews - Write a Review
Classical Vienna! Great ambiance.. The concert hall was well ornated with perfect acoustics. An awesome performance.. loved the artists & their costumes! They played familiar tunes and engaged the audience (clapping to the rhythms). Felt amazing.. will stay in my heart for a long time!!
Listening to classical music being performed by the orchestra wearing costumes and re-enacting attending a classical concert in the 1700's and 1800's in the city of classical music, Vienna, seemed like a great idea. Now I can say, avoid this tourist trap! Pros: Musikverein was a beautiful golden venue with amazing acoustics. Vienna Mozart Orchestra played popular Mozart classics that many people would have recognized. They even tried to get you even more engaged by initiating clapping along the rhythms. Cons: There was lack of air conditioning in the venue. You'll have to purchase the program separately for an additional cost. If you leave your seat, they won't let you back in even between performances. This wasn't indicated anywhere in the ticket, and I had to wait until intermission to get back to my seat. I missed at least three performances. I do not like disrupting others, so I only left after one performance was finished and I was planning to return only after making sure I wasn't entering in the middle of a performance. My seat, for your information, was right at the door, too. I thought this was a bit extreme given there were many people who left their seats and hoped to return to their seats. There were others that returned late from intermission. These people would have had to wait outside until the end of the concert? This concert was packed with tourists who were standing up and taking pictures (though they were told not to do so), talking in the middle of a performance, and generally displaying behaviour showing lack of respect or consideration for other tourists; they were all for pictures, not sounds.
Had a guided tour here and it is very interesting if you lile to watch the New Year's concert. 7,5€ for some 45 mins is not bad I think. No concert included though.
I've only been here once - recently to see a piano recital by none other than Sir Andras Schiff - and his performance that night was gorgeous and rousing, reinforced by the resonance of the space itself: beautiful sound, even in the "cheap seats", but resonant to the eye as well...you sense the history of the place, and the history made there as well. If you care about music *and* happen to find yourself in Vienna, don't overlook this.
Two beautiful halls in one place. Brahms Saal is smaller, good acoustics
