Shepherds play an important part in the Christmas story; many have marvelled at their faith, their dignity and their constancy. And here at MuTh, “The Good Shepherds” Christmas concert has become a tradition for all the Vienna Boys Choir students. This year’s centrepiece is the rarely performed Dixit Dominus and Magnificat KV 186g (193), written by the 18-year old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The concert closes with the Vienna Boys Choir, the Vienna Girls Choir, Chorus Juventus and Schubert-Akademie all performing together.

The Christmas story told as a multimedia theatre experience for the whole family. Armed with questions, an actor sets out to understand the meaning of Christmas. His encounters with Mary, Joseph and the shepherds open his eyes to what the Bible really aims to tell us about the birth of Jesus — and prepare him for his personal meeting with the baby in the crib. The story of Christmas told through theatre and multimedia: contemporary and poetic. This production has been a Christmas favourite at MuTh since 2016!

“Over the last ten years we have found an artistic home here at MuTh. This is a place which has welcomed us as people, shown us understanding, and always been open to our ideas. I think now is the time to give something back to MuTh, even if it’s only a little of our time and our skill”, said Volkhard Steude, who has invited his MuTh colleagues to a grand gala concert. This wonderful evening is an opportunity to hear what makes MuTh special, and to celebrate the exciting future that lies ahead. All those involved have foregone their fees, and the evening’s proceeds will be used to facilitate new projects.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas! With its familiar rituals – wrapping the presents, singing Adeste Fideles and Joy to the World – Christmas certainly means a lot to us all. In this concert, we head off on a Christmas Sleigh Ride, to the sound of Tonight the Stars Shine For the Children and Jingle Bells. And there’s something for you too, from the grown-ups’ Christmas List!  It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Because it’s Christmas! Or, in the words of Jamie Callum: Christmas Never Gets Old. With their renditions of these songs and many more, the Joe Hofbauer Big Band wish us Happy Holiday, and lead us off into a Winter Wonderland. Even when we hear Baby, It’s Cold Outside, and icicles form on the carrot-nose of Frosty the Snowman, the sound of Swing always keeps us warm. So let’s all join in the same wish: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas . . .

Insomnia. On sleepless nights, perhaps all of us - those who are happy and those who are sad (and those who are both), those who have a classical background and those who don’t, singletons and couples alike - could spend each hour listening to music? December 21st would be the ideal date to try this out. December 21st is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. The sun is at its lowest, and it marks the start of astronomical winter. Eerie moods; white landscapes; mysterious moments of beauty in sound: through a live experience, incorporating videos created specifically on the theme of insomnia, Maria Radutu lets us into her personal history, in a project which was inspired by the many journeys she has made by overnight train between Bucharest, Vienna, and Paris. Sometimes, not being able to sleep can be a fascinating experience! The pre-concert wine tasting: BLIND TASTING – On this, the longest and darkest night of the year, we will have a blind wine tasting. The identities of all nine wines will only be revealed just before the concert. You’re bound to be surprised! The wine tasting takes place an hour and a half before the concert, and is open to all who subscribe to the GLASWEISE KLASSIKER cycle. The wine tasting is not included in tickets purchased for this individual concert.

It could be dahaam or dahoam or daheim (“at home”). No matter. Dahaam can mean heavenly relaxation. But Dahaam could also be Hell itself. Things taste best at Dahaam. Or only half as nice as at that place around the corner. There’s always something going on at Dahaam. Except when we’re watching TV. At Dahaam, everything is always done properly. Either that, or well wide of the mark. At Dahaam, everything is sparkling clean. Or utter chaos. At Dahaam, we lean how to walk and fall down, to play and to cheat. to live and to lie. We make purchases at Dahaam. And then Amazon bring them. Everything is private at Dahaam. Yet highly political at the same time. Dahaam is global climate change in miniature. At Dahaam, the kid’s room is awash with a sea of plastic from China. At Dahaam, everything is different, yet much is the same. And all around is Austria. To prevent “Dahaam” from becoming too Austrian, Christof Spörk has chosen Alberto Lovison, the energetic drummer and quick-witted bassist, to accompany him for the first time. Dahaam is found throughout Italy. Except for New Year’s Eve, when there is no Dahaam. And that’s because Dahaam is at MuTh.

“None of us is getting any younger, or any better-looking” remarked Andreas Vitasek once, commenting on the passage of time. Now, along with Camerata Schulz, he invites us to come down to MuTh after the Old Year has passed and enjoy our traditional Concert in the New Year. Vitasek reads from his literary self-portrait, a book entitled “Ich bin der Andere” (I am the Other). Works by Johann Strauss and friends provide a fitting musical companion to tales of the highs, the lows, and the adventures of this great Austrian cabaret artist’s life. Vitasek talks about himself “and those others, who are hiding somewhere within each of us”. His words are sharply observed, comic, moving, and reflective. The concert also includes a couple of musical surprises, featuring Old Vienna and a bit of violin fun. It doesn’t get any better than this!

Große Symphonie im Taschenformat: Im Arrangement für 20 Musiker:innen erklingt Mahlers 4. Symphonie, die er 1901 zur Uraufführung brachte, intimer, aber um nichts weniger packend und berührend. Dem Sopran-Solo „Wir genießen die himmlischen Freuden“ im vierten Satz wird ein neues Vokalstück vorangestellt: Der slowenische Komponist Matija Krečič vertont jenes Gedicht von 1896, das Arnold Schönberg zu seinem berühmten Streichsextett inspirierte: Richard Dehmels „Verklärte Nacht“. Den jugendlich-romantischen Auftakt macht Anton Weberns glühender „Langsamer Satz“, den der 22-jährige Komponist während seiner Lehrzeit bei Arnold Schönberg komponierte.

In these loud, fast-moving times, it’s not easy for lyrical Lieder to gain new listeners. But those who do can find themselves deeply moved and enriched by the experience. Baritone Florian Boesch knows this art form well. As Professor of Lied and Oratorium at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna, he is instrumental in passing it on to the next generation. A selection of students sing Lieder and multi-part songs. They demonstrate that this art form is certainly not a thing of the past, and a strong future lies ahead.

  In the TV series “Babylon Berlin”, Karl Markovics plays an Austrian journalist whose character’s personality has something in common with the subjects of the stories he recounts this evening. StorIes which tell how life can finish us off before the proper time has arrived. It’s all about eating and drinking ... “Restaurants provide an opportunity for landlords to play the host, guests to place their orders, and waiters to eat”, noted Karl Kraus. Markovics serves up literary offerings from Alfred Polgar, Josef Roth, Anton Kuh, Friedrich Torberg, Kraus and others – plenty to delight the palate and bring a smile to our faces. The Oberösterreichischen Concert-Schrammeln ensemble provide the musical accompaniment, dispensing a fine selection of tasty nibbles — a long way from the usual Heurige fare.

Group singing for parents-to-be and families with babies and small children

Over the course of these MAMMA PAPA MIA sessions, new parents and parents-to-be learn cradle songs and children’s songs from all kinds of sources, including Mozart, Lalelu, and Latin American folk music. Singing together has a calming effect. It can strengthen relationships and build trust. In addition, singing exercises encourage bodily awareness and improve breathing. And best of all – singing is something that anyone can do. That has been the experience of singing teacher Giti Huber, of the “Vienna City I Can’t Sing” choir. The whole family is welcome to come along and sing together! Unborn children can hear too, and later on these tunes will be associated with the feeling of safety in the mother’s womb. So singing – especially during pregnancy – is an enriching experience for both mother and child.

At the end of the session you can sit back, relax and enjoy a short concert with a lot of musical variety.

“My head is so full of ideas. If only someone could write them all down!”, wrote Antonín Dvořák in 1889. He completed his second Piano Quartet shortly afterwards. Josef Suk, his student at the Prague Conservatory, was also full of inspiration. When he presented his composition examination piece in 1891, it was greeted with general amazement. And Beethoven’s E Flat Major Quartet, written when he was just 16, is in no way inferior to these other works. Each is a superb example of the piano quartet form, which, even in a musical city like Vienna, features on concert programmes all too rarely,. That’s not how things should be, thought Christian Altenburger. So, together with his long-standing musician friends, he decided to take on these three masterpieces of the form.

John Leslie „Wes“ Montgomery (1923-1968) gilt als einer der einflussreichsten US-amerikanischen Jazzgitarristen. Er entwickelte eine eigenwillige Spieltechnik, bei der er die Saiten in Single-Note-Technik mit seinem Daumen anstatt eines Plektrums anschlug und so einen sehr weichen Sound erzeugte. Charakteristisch war genauso seine von Django Reinhardt übernommene Oktavtechnik. Außerdem verwendete Montgomery Kombinationen aus Single-Note- und Akkordtechniken, die den Eindruck erwecken, als ob zwei Gitarristen spielten. Carlos Santana sah Wes Montgomery 1967 bei der Grammy- Verleihung im Fernsehen und war begeistert: „Er hatte einen ganz ungewöhnlichen Gitarrensound, wie eine tiefe, väterliche Stimme. Es war, als würde mir jemand den Kopf tätscheln und sagen: ‚Alles wird gut‘“. Flip Philipp & Bertl Mayer Quartet widmen Wes Montgomery undder Musik des mit seinen Brüdern Buddy und Monk gebildeten Trios in ihrem Konzert in der MuTh-Jubiläums-Saison eine Hommage – Alles wird gut!

For ten years now the BartolomeyBittmann duo have been heavily involved in developing a personal, progressive repertoire of music to suit their chosen instruments, which of course are strongly associated with the classical music tradition. From the start they concentrated on original compositions, and they focused on experimenting with new techniques for playing the cello, violin and mandola. The pieces range from powerful rock riffs and breakneck virtuoso passages to more intimate grooves and gentle cantilenas. Finding the instruments’ true acoustic essence, without resorting to the use of electronics or effects, has always been at the heart of this project. This new programme “z e h n” celebrates their ten-year anniversary. It showcases new works, most of which were composed during lockdown.

Wien der 1870er-Jahre. Strauss Sohn und Brahms grüßen sich auf der Tuchlauben oder am Karlsplatz, begeistert von den Kompositionen des jeweils anderen. Brahms hört zum ersten Mal „Wein, Weib und Gesang“ und zitiert den Walzer in einem seiner Quartette.Wien, seit 150 Jahren übervoll mit den besten Komponisten, begonnen beim „Übervater“ Joseph Haydn, Vorbild aller Nachfolger wie Mozart und Beethoven. Sein f-Moll Quartett, mit seiner Flüsterfuge, kommt wiederum dem Strauss‘schen Walzer durchaus sehr nahe.Brahms erweist mit seinen „Variationen über ein Thema von Haydn“ (1874) dem alten Meister seine Ehre, sein symphonisch angelegtes Klavierquintett (1869) steht in der gleichen Tonart wie Haydns Quartett.Ein Reigen von Zusammenhängen: Wer hätte nicht gerne ein Treffen der drei bei einem intimen Abendessen im Augarten belauscht…?

Béla Bartók was born in 1881 in Nagyszentmiklós (Great St. Nicholas), within the lands of the Habsburg Empire. Today the town of his birth is known as Sânnicolau Mare, and falls within present-day Romania. That country’s national composer is George Enescu. He studied in Vienna with Joseph Hellmesberger Jr, violinist and conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic. Now, here in what was the capital of the former multi-ethnic state, the Romanian-born, Vienna-trained pianist Catalina Butcaru appears alongside German-born Vienna Philharmonic player Volkhard Steude, performing Bartók, Enescu and Brahms. So it seems quite appropriate that the programme should also include the work of Karol Szymanowski, the “father of Polish music”, who was actually born in modern-day Ukraine.

One of the Vienna Boys Choirs goes delving into the life of Mozart. In the process they discover two incomplete works, which Mozart had decided not to finish. The music is heavenly, but the script – well, that’s a little disappointing. Suddenly they realise anyone can contribute something here - a look, or a gesture, or a joke. How did the Choir manage to turn all this into a finished piece? And what has an old opera got to do with the children of today? Come along to MuTh and find out! To celebrate their 525th birthday, the Vienna Boys Choir have decided to treat themselves and their audience to this new opera production. Directed by Doug Fitch, it is based on Mozart’s operatic fragment “L‘oca del Cairo”.

Group singing for parents-to-be and families with babies and small children

Over the course of these MAMMA PAPA MIA sessions, new parents and parents-to-be learn cradle songs and children’s songs from all kinds of sources, including Mozart, Lalelu, and Latin American folk music. Singing together has a calming effect. It can strengthen relationships and build trust. In addition, singing exercises encourage bodily awareness and improve breathing. And best of all – singing is something that anyone can do. That has been the experience of singing teacher Giti Huber, of the “Vienna City I Can’t Sing” choir. The whole family is welcome to come along and sing together! Unborn children can hear too, and later on these tunes will be associated with the feeling of safety in the mother’s womb. So singing – especially during pregnancy – is an enriching experience for both mother and child.

At the end of the session you can sit back, relax and enjoy a short concert with a lot of musical variety.

PHOENIX steers us through cheerfulness and melancholy, mania and stability. The programme aims to let the listener experience the richness of each of these emotional worlds in a single evening. It is a voyage which takes in twelve ports of call, namely twelve piano pieces by composers ranging from Frédéric Chopin to Mikael Karlsson. While the music is being performed, paintings by the artist Felicia Gulda are projected for the audience. Each painting was inspired by the piece of music it accompanies. In the words of Maria Radutu: “PHOENIX is the transformation of the youthful, passionate, unfettered soul, through a process of escape and loss, into self-confidence and maturity. An evening full of music, with a few stories - an evening to help us feel all those emotions once again.” The pre-concert wine tasting: WINE REBORN We take a look at recent discoveries - and also some comebacks - in the world of wine. Our aim: to leave behind the well-trodden path, and make new discoveries. This calls for courage and daring! The wine tasting takes place an hour and a half before the concert, and is open to all who subscribe to the GLASWEISE KLASSIKER cycle. The wine tasting is not included in tickets purchased for this individual concert.

A musical stroll through our local neighbourhood: The music of Vienna ... It’s immediately recognisable, from the very first bar. But what exactly is it? What makes it what it is? And most of all: does it still exist? Or does “the music of Vienna” mean Schubert, Lanner and Strauss - and did it die with them? Definitely not, say Messrs Neuwirth and Theissing. Suddenly, this short stroll has turned into something much longer. It stretches down through time, across many generations, all the way to here and now.  The wonderful Wiener Theatermusiker are part of this tradition. The First Violin places her bow ... They start to play ... Oh, this Lanner piece is marvellous! And so is this Schubert! Then, suddenly - CAUTION! WET PAINT! What’s all this about? VIENNA, WITH A NEW LOOK!

Dido liebt Aeneas, und Aeneas liebt Dido, aber Dido hat eine Feindin: Die Zauberin setzt mit ihren Hexen alles daran, einen Keil zwischen die beiden zu treiben. Ihr Ziel ist die Vernichtung von Dido und Karthago. Die Hexen, die große Freude an Zerstörung haben, pflegen einen ganz besonderen Gesangsstil: Der Chor spielt eine Hauptrolle im Stück.„Dido“ gilt als eine der bedeutendsten Opern des Barock.

Following their highly successful MuTh premiere in September 2021, the six cellists of Celloversum take us on a second journey through the ages. Travelling in time from the Renaissance to the present day, they showcase the instrument’s vast range of colours and its remarkable versatility. The programme encompasses Gesualdo’s mystical, spiritual “Spheres”, the passionate rhythms and cantilenas of Bernstein, and the new groove-infused compositions of Matthias Bartolomey. The players are drawn from Bartolomey’s colleagues and students. Together, their playing demonstrates not only an orchestral power and intensity, but also a subtlety and intimacy more closely associated with chamber music.

Over 200 ears listen, as 20 nimble fingers scurry along 176 piano keys! But the keys are not the whole story. To do its job properly, a concert grand needs lots of parts: there’s the cast iron frame, the lid, the strings, the hammers, the pedals, and a whole lot more besides. This concert takes us off for some wonderful new soundworlds, propelled by the sound of music for two pianos and the voices of the Vienna Boys Students’ Choir.

Since its founding in 2014, the New Piano Trio has been closely associated with Benjamin Schmid. For Florian Willeitner, the trio’s violinist and composer, Schmid has been a role model, a source of inspiration, and a teacher. Both of the main works in this evening’s concert — the sublime, elegiac “Valentinair”, and “Blue Folk Symphony”, which is the second movement of Willeitner’s Violin Concerto No.1 — are dedicated to Benjamin Schmid. As Benjamin Schmid once said: “Florian’s music is what we have all been waiting for: a combination of mind, emotion, and groove”. For this coming-together of the world-famous violinist and these three young colleagues, Willeitner has produced delicate, sprightly chamber music versions of these two works, which were originally composed for solo violin and orchestra. A selection of “best-of” pieces from the trio’s repertoire serves to complete the programme.

In 1828, Franz Schubert wrote to his publisher of his final piano trio: “This work is dedicated to none except those whom it pleases”. Years later Robert Schumann, who famously helped bring Schubert’s music to the attention of the wider world, spoke of a “fiery star in the heavens”. His friend Felix Mendelssohn, who conducted the first performance of Schubert’s great Symphony in C Major, did not have it easy when it came to his own second (and final) piano trio. The work was always overshadowed by his first composition in this form — and unfairly so. Joseph Haydn dedicated a set of trios he composed in London in 1795 to the pianist Rebecca Schroeter, a woman “who I could very easily have married, had I been single”. These included his most famous trio work, the G Major “Gypsy”, with its fiery “Rondo a l’Ongarese”.

Das alte Volksbuch erzählt die Geschichte des Doktor Johann Faust, angefangen von seinem Pakt mit dem Teufel bis zu seinem Tode. Facetten dieser Geschichte werden beleuchtet von Faust-Texten aus vier Jahrhunderten. So treten Marlowe, Hesse und Lenau auf. Beethoven, Liszt und Schumann bilden ein musikalisches Spannungsfeld, das bis zum Wahnsinn reicht. Lenau, begabt dilettierender Geiger, Beethoven-Verehrer, Liebhaber ungarischer Zigeunermusik, formt in plastischer Sprache abgründige Seelenbilder. Liszt hat wie kein zweiter den Kampf zwischen dämonischen Mächten und göttlicher Gnade in seiner Musik ausgedrückt. Somit hat er sich immer wieder mit Faust beschäftigt, etwa in seiner Faustsymphonie. Der Erzähler scheint sich selbst in Faust und in Mephisto zu verwandeln, wird Teufelsgeiger … Das letzte Wort ist in der Musik verborgen.

So who would the young Alma Mahler have invited to a musical salon at the Vienna residence where she lived with her husband Gustav? Which composers would she have asked to perform their latest works in this intimate chamber setting? A little-known fact: Alma wrote music herself. But when she married Gustav, she had to give up her dreams of being a composer. This was a stipulation of Mahler’s. She studied composition with Zemlinksy, and was in close contact with Pfitzner, while Richard Strauss and his wife Pauline were frequent guests at the Mahler home. Sophie Heinrich and Paul Rivinius invite us into Alma’s salon. They play works by some of the “house guests”, and Heinrich is moderator for the evening.

In this recording the violinist, together with the pianist Magda Amara and baritone Günter Haumer, interprets music by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Eric Zeisl. These Viennese composers escaped Nazism by emigrating to the USA. They became major figures in Hollywood during the golden age of film music.

Während wir heute das Musikschaffen aus der ganzen Welt aufführen und hören können, verbieten autoritäre und totalitäre Regime Künstler:innen aufgrund ideologischer oder rassistischer und antisemitischer Gründe bzw. missbrauchen ihre Musik. So wurden bei Mozart während des Nationalsozialismus alle Musik-Elemente, die auf seine Zugehörigkeit zu den Freimaurern hindeuteten, ausgelöscht. Erwin Schulhoff hatte während des NS-Terrors Auftrittsverbot, weil sein Vater jüdischer Herkunft war. Antonín Dvořáks Musik wurde aufgrund dessen slawischer Herkunft nur mit Vorbehalten rezipiert, und Iván Eröd emigrierte nach der Niederschlagung der Revolution in Ungarn 1956, da das Kommunistische Regime die musikalische Avantgarde stigmatisierte.Oliver Rathkolb

“And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made ...” In the Jewish faith, one of the most important of the Ten Commandments is to rest on Saturdays. From days past — under Roman rule, in Moorish Spain, in the Jewish shtetlekh of Eastern Europe — right up to the present-day in Israel and in Jewish communities around the world, the Sabbath is observed every single week. It offers time for purification and contemplation; time to get together with family and friends,and time for music-making. Through stories, psalms and songs, Timna Brauer invites the audience into the family circle, so that we can all celebrate this festive day together. A thrilling exploration of ancient musical traditions from Europe and the Orient.

The “hero” of the story is a foundling child, who is discovered as an infant on an ocean liner and raised on board by an engine room stoker. His name comes from the year in which he was found: Novecento (= 1900). The adolescent Novecento discovers a piano in the ship’s ballroom, and teaches himself to play it - perfectly. He comes to the attention of piano player Jelly Roll Morton, the King of Ragtime, a man not known for his modesty. Morton invites him to a Ragtime piano competition. We won’t reveal exactly how that turns out. But Novecento will never leave the ship. At least that’s how the Italian author scripted this marvellous story with its tragic ending. Alessandro Baricco’s drama has proved to be a lucky find, indeed an absolute gift for the talents of actor Frank Hoffmann and his musician friends. Please note: It is now intended to hold a memorial for Frank Hofmann with some of his friends and colleagues on the evening scheduled for this event. More information will be provided at a later date.

Trios for clarinet, cello and piano. Ludwig van Beethoven did it. So did Brahms, Bruch, Fauré, Glinka and Zemlinsky. Even Arnold Schönberg did it - although his was only sixteen bars long. They all composed for a trio format of clarinet, cello and piano. Some of these became much-loved musical treasures; others have yet to be discovered. Clarinettist Daniel Ottensamer, cellist Stephan Koncz and pianist Christoph Traxler have known each other since childhood. So they make the ideal team to find these hidden treasures. “The Clarinet Trio Anthology” is the name of their endeavour, which promises an exciting voyage of discovery to all who board at MuTh.

Werner Preisegott Pirchner was not only a musician and a composer; he also drew, and wrote poetry as well. Describing his first encounter with Pirchner’s music, Tobias Moretti remarked “I thought: ‘It’s as if Mozart has been born again’”. The Eggner Trio are joined by Tobias Moretti, who has a special connection to this exceptionally gifted Tyrolean, as they take on Pirchner’s three piano trios.

The Roman goddess Concordia was always shown carrying a horn of plenty. She personified virtues such as unanimity, understanding and harmony, all qualities which are clearly needed when musicians play together. And these characteristics are very much in evidence when Maria Radutu performs with other MuTh artists such as Sophie Heinrich and Matthias Bartolomey. We hear piano quintets by Mieczysław Weinberg and Dimitri Shostakovich. These two composers not only suffered similar fates, with both experiencing repression under Josef Stalin’s reign of terror; they were bound together by a lifelong friendship, and each held the other in high esteem. They also inspired one other, and this led to lavish masterpieces such as their quintets: powerful and sensitive, with an explosive power!  The pre-concert wine tasting: CUVÉE CONCORDE - Each of this evening’s wines is the product of a friendship between winemakers - wines which have developed out of a shared inspiration and a sense of partnership. The wine tasting takes place an hour and a half before the concert, and is open to all who subscribe to the GLASWEISE KLASSIKER cycle. The wine tasting is not included in tickets purchased for this individual concert.

Down at the wine tavern they’re serving a pleasing new young wine. But it’s not just the wine that’s young: there are some young musicians there too. Michael Schade, well-known as a Viennese song enthusiast, has invited some of his young colleagues to join us. With Shira Patchornik, winner of the coveted Innsbruck Cesti-Preize, and a new ensemble, which has been put together by Peter Uhler, the RSO member and Vienna winemaker, the sound of Schrammel violins fills the air. Naturally enough, there is a wine tasting as well. And the cheery voices of tavern guests in the background!

Music a-plenty to dance to - and songs you can sing along with to your heart’s content! If your legs are tired, we can just sit and watch the musicians’ fingers as they dance on the keys of the accordion, while we enjoy listening to some dance music. Or maybe you’d like to know how children dance in other countries, and would like to try it out for yourself.

When we sit in the auditorium, enjoying some marvellous music or a wonderful piece of theatre — what’s going on behind the scenes? How is the acoustic created? We see the stage – but what equipment is hidden behind, below and above it? What skills does a sound engineer need? And what clever trickery is used to create all those amazing illusions? At MuTh you can peer over the technicians’ shoulders, take a peek behind the curtain, and find out just how theatre magic is made.

Over the course of these MAMMA PAPA MIA sessions, new parents and parents-to-be learn cradle songs and children’s songs from all kinds of sources, including Mozart, Lalelu, and Latin American folk music. Singing together has a calming effect. It can strengthen relationships and build trust. In addition, singing exercises encourage bodily awareness and improve breathing. And best of all – singing is something that anyone can do. That has been the experience of singing teacher Giti Huber, of the “Vienna City I Can’t Sing” choir. The whole family is welcome to come along and sing together! Unborn children can hear too, and later on these tunes will be associated with the feeling of safety in the mother’s womb. So singing – especially during pregnancy – is an enriching experience for both mother and child.

At the end of the session you can sit back, relax and enjoy a short concert with a lot of musical variety.

There are many categories of so-called “light” music. On the other hand, “complex” music can also be made easy to listen to. In this concert we hear remarkable improvisations on classical violin pieces, witness the interplay between the musicians’ inner spirits and the groove, and learn how a jazz standard can constitute a complete composition. In a programme which includes treatments of classical works and their own compositions, Benjamin Schmid, Antoni Donchev and Georg Breinschmid conduct a three-way musical conversation, combining great virtuosity and instrumental mastery with impressive improvisational skills. Their repertoire has only one requirement: the music must invite improvisation. Music by composers ranging from Bach to Breinschmid and Grappelli to Weill provide the raw material on which these three outstanding musicians build their improvisations.

„…im Land wo die Zitronen blühn!“ (.. in the country where the lemon-trees flower!). There’s no doubt this means Italy, that longed-for land of the south. A programme of music and literature which places Mediterranean flair and Italian joie de vivre front and centre. Actor, Italy-lover, and author Michael Dangl reads from his book “Orangen für Dostojewski” (Oranges for Dostoevsky) and from his “Hymnus an den Süden” (Hymn to the South). Music is provided by the tenor Pablo Cameselle and pianist Andrea Linsbauer. Performing classics by Liszt and Mendelssohn, they show that, even in the 19th century, Italy was often celebrated in song as a travel destination. The programme also includes works such as familiar Neapolitan canzoni by Tosti and Leoncavallo, as well as well-known hits from the 20s, such as “Torna a Surriento!” and “Non ti scordar di me!”, both written by Ernesto De Curtis
