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.

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.

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.

The orchestra and the music were amazing. Definitely worth 5 stars but what let it down for us were our seats. Right up in the Gods with very little view of the orchestra so after the interval I stood at the back in the middle of the theatre and that way I could see almost all the orchestra. But our seats were a very big disappointment. But musically it was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend attending a concert there. Such a beautiful setting

Really enjoyed this concert and the conductor was very humorous and really enjoyed his art. He got the audience to participate in clapping and got some laughs too. The orchestra team were all dressed in Mozart outfit and played very beautifully.

The concert location was NOT the state opera house...rather a less grand location several blocks away from the opera house. Also ...I was expecting a representation of a complete Mozart opera...not snippets of several of his works. The orchestra and male opera singer were good...the soprano ....not so much. Also the staff there was rather rude...but I found this to be the case throughout my visit in Vienna
