Itinerary:

The program of the Vienna Mozart Concerts is characterized by a very accurate selection of the works. The artistic conception giving ground to the musical sequence of overtures, arias, duets, movements of symphonies and concerts offers powerful insight in the titanic works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Performers
The Vienna Mozart Orchestra includes 30 musicians from the best Viennese orchestras; 2 opera singers (soprano and baritone) from the Vienna State Opera and Volksopera; and 1 soloist for piano, violin and flute.

Orchestra, conductor and singers perform in period costumes
Formerly the winter residence of the Habsburgs, the Hofburg has a unique situation among the great festive halls in Vienna. It was here that the Emperor entertained his guests. Modern technical systems, such as air-conditioning have been successfully integrated into this magnificent hall.

History of the Vienna Mozart Orchestra
The Vienna Mozart Orchestra was founded in 1986 by musicians from the best and most famous Viennese orchestras and from various chambers music ensembles. The artists all shared the aim of preserving the musical tradition and the cultural of Vienna by dedicating themselves to the cultivation and representation of symphonic chamber music of the Viennese Classical Period.

As the name Vienna Mozart Orchestra implies, the 30 musicians devote themselves exclusively to the works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the most accomplished representative of that period who, though born in Salzburg, found his home in Vienna. The orchestra's repertoire ranges from all of Mozart's symphonies to a great variety of his instrumental concertos (for violin, piano and wind) to arias and duets from his most famous operas.

    All of the ushers and musicians are in period costumes, setting the mood for a total sense of traveling back in time to another era. Loved the conductor who overflowed with personality and charm. The female operatic star had a beautiful voice, and the male operatic star really connected with the audience. The conductor included the audience in the grand finale. A memorable time was had by all.

  • 12-Oct-2017

    The concert hall inside was really nice, however, the performance was only average.

  • 26-Sep-2017

    This was a phenomenal experience. A great venue, a great engaging performance, in a great part of the city.

  • 18-Sep-2017

    Very fun! Loved the box seats.

  • 04-Sep-2017

    Wonderful seats and great atmosphere.

  • 03-Sep-2017

    The building is out of this world, so beautiful. The orchestra, conductor, and soprano are also excellent. I had paid for B seats, which I thought would be good seats. However, it still had quite a restrictive view. The concert is conceived for a very popular taste. Parts of symphonies, not a whole ones.

  • 01-Sep-2017

    My parents very much enjoyed this concert.

  • 28-Aug-2017

    Great performance at outstanding opera house.

  • 20-Aug-2017

    It was ok just like any other symphony. The costume and the theatre added some extras but still lots of money for a symphony performance.

  • 01-Aug-2017

    It was a great way to get the tickets without the hassle.
