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.
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.

Great! There are many young men selling concert tickets on the city streets. However, I doubt any could have provided the thrill of seating center stage third row of a concert preformed as one may have seen in an earlier centuries.
We really enjoyed the show. One of the reasons was the seating. We were seated on the stage to the side of the orchestra. Plus, the performance was great. From the orchestra to the performers they were first rate.
The venue was also beautiful. The sound was perfect.
The concert was excellent. We had great seats, second row of the balcony. The venue is air conditioned which was wonderful given how hot it was. The conductor was excellent and actually got the audience involved at one point. It was really enjoyable. One of the female singers was probably a substitute since she was not listed in the program. She appeared to have trouble projecting. The tenor and baritone were great though. One weird thing is that they claimed to give you a CD of the performance, but the CD we received was of a completely different performance. Another odd thing is that they leave the lights up fully during the entire performance. This leads to people taking pictures and video throughout which is a bit distracting....but what can you do.
Wonderful concert worth every penny.....the seats were amazing next to the orchestra, the conductor was funny and professional..WE love it and strongly recommend it.Thanks for this great event.
A 5 - it was a fantastic evening. I highly recommend it!!
More than outstanding. The conductor had a great sense of humor, flair, expertise and emotion. The baritone was good. The soprano was terrific ! The musicians were excellent. What they all did was demonstrate their superb musicianship but also remembered that they are entertainers as well. The Musikverein was full of highly appreciative and enthusiastic audience. 3 encores. The place was beautiful, acoustics great, air conditioned...perfect evening. Although some people did not dress up, the place had asked audience to dress up. Most people did. Wonderful evening! Musikverein was easy to get to on the U-bahn.
It was great fun! The orchestra chose to play Mozart selections that most people would recognize and the acoustics in the Musikverein were amazing! We had seats on the stage behind the orchestra so it was great to watch the conductor and see how much fun he seemed to be having.
The performance was very entertaining and the music was brilliant- even non-classic listeners will recognise some pieces of music.
It was perfect!!! The one thing, it will be very useful to have map with way to this theatre as even people from reception of my hotel 5 starts didn't know exactly where is it and suggest me to go to the Vienna Opera :
very good performance and dress
