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.

The Musikverein is a fantastic venue for the concert. I was surprised at how good the position of our seats was for the reasonable price that we paid. We had a really good view of the orchestra and the stage. The atmosphere was great, all added to by the period costume of the orchestra, and the music was excellent. A very enjoyable evening.
This was my favorite venue. It is magnificent!
The orchestra was wonderful and we had a memorable evening.
Fantastic night. Venue, concert, vocalists and dancers,.all fabulous. Loved the entire night.
Excellent concert but unfortunately the majority of the audience were Japanese. They found it necessary to hold mobile phones in the air taking photographs throughout the concert. One person sat two rows in front of us was particularly annoying. This spoilt what was otherwise an excellent venue and concert.
The concert was amazing!, but I don and #39;t understand why after we pay a considerable amount of money for the tickets we were not given the program for free.
We were asked to pay 6€ additional.
In my country when we buy tickets for a concert, the program is free of charge!
Very fine places
Ana-Maria S Romania
A wonderful experience at the wellknown location. My category C ticket was not in the back seats though but above the orchestra.
I would highly recommend this concert
