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.

This was an excellent and amusing performance. We were so happy to be able to enjoy the Mozart music, sitting in the Konzerthaus in Vienna. The trip to Vienna could not have been complete without attending this concert. We would highly recommend this to everyone who visits Vienna.

This concert was well worth it! the conductor made the evening entertaining.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2010

This was excellent. The concert hall was professional and designed for this type of serious music. It was also very well executed and sounded great. Toward the end the conductor engaged the audience and had us clapping to the music. It was professional, entertaining and fun but still high quality. It was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this.

Very enjoyable-dress code was not so smart so we were a little overdressed.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2010

The theatre was beautiful and the location was very convenient. I bought a B ticket and was seated very close to the stage I thought it was worth extra money. All the pieces played were familiar ones, but listening to live music was great. I really enjoyed it.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2014

Went in concert hall, had heavy garlic and oily food smell. Air quality was worse than in the kitchen of restaurant. Music performance : violin solo very good, supranio sang very good special in the second part of performance. Disappointed orchestra musician was not professionally performed.
