What You Can Expect
Built in 1606 for the Archbishop of Salzburg, the palace was later burnt down in the city fire of 1818. Fortunately, the two must-see areas of the palace – the Marble Hall (Marmorsaal) and the Donnerstiege -- were not harmed, and they’ve retained their exquisite Baroque appeal.
Walk past the Donnerstiege – a spectacular marble staircase adorned with sculptures – and then head into the Marble Hall. The opulent chandeliered room was once the Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich’s banquet hall, as well as the place where Mozart’s father is said to have rehearsed.
A host will show you to your seat inside the hall, and then all that’s left to do is sit down and enjoy your 1-hour and 40-minute, chamber-music concert. Performed by a smaller number of musicians than for a typical symphony orchestra, chamber music was historically created for performances inside intimate private rooms, like the Marble Hall.
The instruments will typically include piano, viola, violin and cello, and classical music composed between the 17th and 19th centuries will be played. The pieces of music played vary per concert, but you can expect to hear music by much-loved composers like Mozart, Bach, Handel and Beethoven.
Half-way through the performance, there is a 10-minute break, and at the end of the concert, simply make your own way out of the palace.
We had a really lovely evening. It was perfect to have the opportunity to attend a small venue in a beautiful historic Salzburg building, and listen to Mozart and other composers being played by a group of very talented musicians, who also obviously seemed to be enjoying performing for us.
