String quartet Mozart Ensemble
Concerts at the Vienna Mozarthaus
Four chamber musicians, experienced in playing solo as well as together, form the Vienna string quartet Mozart Ensemble Wien. Directed by Claudio Bentes at the position of first violin, the Mozart Ensemble Vienna has become an insider's tip for fans of Viennese chamber music. In the classic cast of two violins, a viola and a cello, the Mozart Ensemble brings to life the most beautiful works of the Viennese classic in all its nuances. With playful charm and and nimble figuration, the string quartet plays a program with selected works of Joseph Haydn, Franz Schubert and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Because of renovations at the Sala Terrena the Mozart Ensemble concerts will take place at the Colloredo Hall — one floor above the Sala Terrena — from July 16th 2018 till the middle of July 2019.
Sala Terrena at the Deutschordenshaus
A voyage into the depths of Viennese chamber music begins before even entering into the concert hall. The Deutschordenshaus at Singerstraße is an imposing building, somehow not willing to fit into the Inner City with its narrow alleys and mysterious yards. It is not often that one can see how Vienna has changed and grown over the epochs that have passed.
Musical ghosts roam Vienna's streets and the town remains besotted with its past musical masters. Mozart's String Quartet C-Dur KV.157, Haydn's Quartet in d - moll op. 76/2 and Beethoven's string quartet Nr. 10 in Es-Dur fill the narrow streets of Vienna with delightful music. Oh, if only there were more time for Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. Mozart's formal elegance, Beethoven's fluent expression and Haydn's famous string quartets guide one according to Viennese Classic, to the imperial era with a pinch of European quartet tradition. And you might find out that Mozart Ensemble's graceful phrasing and awareness of structure are musical equivalents of Vienna's ornate architecture and imperial atmosphere.
The concerts take place on Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 19:30, and on Saturday at 18:00 with additional concerts at Christmas and New Year. Concert length is about 75 minutes. Tickets are available in two categories A and B.
|Category A||59.00 €|
