New York-born Marisol Montalvo is an American of Puerto Rican descent. After her parents separated, Marisol’s mother raised her and her seven siblings by herself. They grew up in New York, in very basic living conditions. Marisol was still a child when she first discovered the magic of the stage and the thrill of singing. And so began one of the most amazing careers that the world of opera has ever seen. A one-time Miss New York, Marisol became one of the most sought-after interpreters of the role of Lulu. Her career took her to the greatest opera houses and concert halls of the world: to Zurich, Vienna and Paris, and back home to New York. Audiences were enchanted by her voice, her beauty and her personality. On the surface, everything seemed to be working smoothly. But her anxiety, her inability to concentrate, and the constant and increasing pressures of life in the operatic world meant she was growing increasingly unbalanced. However, instead of taking time out, she pushed on relentlessly without a break. She worked her vocal chords so hard that they started to bleed. She suppressed her pain with squirts of cortisone - far too much cortisone. She collapsed, and it seemed her career was over. And her life too? No, not with Marisol. Her will to live, and her joy in living, brought her back from the edge. And she learned who she it, and what she has, and what she wants. Prepare yourself for an evening packed full of energy. An evening with a powerful message: no matter how far we fall, we all have the chance to get up again and carry on. An evening of wide-ranging emotions, and a wealth of music. An evening that will uplift and inspire. An evening with Marisol Montalvo. Please note: most of this event takes place in English.

The Ragazzi Boys Chorus comes from the USA, and is one of the foremost organisations providing musical education and performance opportunities for boys in the San Francisco Bay Area. It draws over 175 boys from a total of 90 schools, making it the largest boys’ choir in the region. The Ragazzi Boys have appeared at the San Francisco Opera and the San Jose Opera. They have performed with the San Francisco Symphony, the Silicon Valley Symphony, and the Stanford University Symphonic Chorus. The recording of Stravinsky’s “Perséphone” featuring Ragazzi and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra garnered no less than three Grammys. Led by Kent Jue, who is both artistic director and executive director, the Chorus undertakes regular tours across the United States and indeed around the world. The aim is to expand the cultural and musical horizons of the choir members, and to cement Ragazzi’s already excellent reputation. Mozart Knabenchor Wien is a choral association of lads aged 7 to 22. They live at home, and attend a publicly funded school of their choosing. The younger members all sing soprano or alto until their voices break. Since the choir’s sound palette includes men’s voices as well as boys’, they have the opportunity to remain in the choir and sing tenor or bass. Their concert tours have taken them to Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Chile, as well as to almost every country in Europe. Mozart Knabenchor Wien often works with well-known artists and famous orchestras, such as the Vienna Philharmonic, the SWR Baden-Baden Freiburg Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI. These youngsters have also worked with global stars such as Barbara Hendricks, Bertrand de Billy, Christian Boesch, Eric Ericson, Marcello Viotti, Sylvain Cambreling, José Cura, and Daniel Harding.

Weil der Musikrevolutionär John Cage in den 1940er Jahren für die beiden afroamerikanischen Choreografinnen Syvilla Fort (1917–1975) und Pearl Primus (1919–1994) komponiert hat, wollte Lenio Kaklea dieses „Duett mit einem Pianisten“ erarbeiten. Cages Schlüsselwerk der Avantgardemusik Sonatas and Interludes ist zwischen 1946 und 1948 entstanden, einige Jahre nachdem er mit Bacchanale zu einem Stück von Fort sein erstes Werk für präpariertes Klavier geschaffen hatte. Im Jahr 1943 komponierte er für Primus’ Tanz Our Spring will Come die gleichnamige Musik. An diese Geschichte will Lenio Kaklea heute erinnern: „Herstory“ anstatt „History“! Darauf pocht die gebürtige Griechin mit Nachdruck, und dafür lässt sie ihr extrem fein strukturiertes und detailreiches Duett-Solo entstehen, in dem sie selbst lässig bis eckig im schwarzen Motorraddress und in einem roten Leotard tanzt, sich via Video vergrößert und mit dem großartigen Pianisten Orlando Bass ebenso miteinbezieht wie den eigenen Schatten. So überzeugend kann die Richtigstellung von Geschichtsschreibung auch im Tanz umgesetzt werden.Österreichische ErstaufführungVeranstalter und Ticketverkauf: impulstanz

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. She has spent years working with people who are new to singing, including her involvement in “1. Wiener ich kann nicht singen Chor” (First Vienna ‘I can’t sing’ Choir). Through a variety of simple exercises, she soon makes sure that everyone forgets their shyness and discovers the joy of singing. 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. Accompanied by a small ensemble, they get to sing modern songs designed to make children’s daily lives a little easier and a bit more fun: songs for bath-time, songs for cleaning your teeth, and songs to comfort children when they’re unhappy. So aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends are all very welcome to come along and join in the singing. The children’s brothers and sisters can also come down to MAMMA PAPA MIA and enjoy a room filled with music. 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 and very varied concert.

Right from his youth, Brahms was fascinated by the cello, and the “manly, serious nature ... of the instrument”. He completed his first cello sonata in 1865, dedicating it to his friend the legal expert Dr Josef Gänsbacher. César Franck dedicated his violin sonata to the great virtuoso Eugène Ysaie, who gave the piece its premiere performance in Brussels in 1886. Schubert’s Trio in B Flat Major was first performed shortly after its completion, in the final Schubertiade hosted by Joseph von Spaun. This took place on 28th January 1828, and was performed by two friends of Beethoven, Ignaz Schuppanzigh (violin) and Joseph Lincke (cello), with Schubert’s friend Carl Maria von Bocklet at the piano

In the art song canon, Robert Schumann’s “Dichterliebe” (A Poet’s Love) stands out as a masterpiece. Nonetheless, by making adirect comparison between the original – interpreted here by lyric tenor Markus Miesenberger and pianist Rainer Nova – and their reworking, CrossNova, in partnership with singer Heidemaria Oberthür, succeed in creating fresh perspectives and new possibilities in the contemporary Lied form. These take the focus away from seeking to recreate the original sound or resolving difficult questions of interpretation, and move it towards a treatment of historic material which is unrestrained by questions of contemporaneity. “The process here is almost hermeneutic — like decoding a long-dead language and making it understandable” wrote the critic Michael Wruss. He also observed that in this treatment “slow-tempo Lieder gain the drive and impetus of a well-crafted soul ballad”, and that “several ironic Lieder sound even more biting”.

A chance to hear three of the most famous works for flute trio in a single evening. These works were written by different composers, each of them deemed a piano marvel of their time. Hummel’s “Schöne Minka” variations (based on a popular Russian folk song) are amongst his best-known works. Weber wrote his trio for a doctor friend, “Dr Philipp Jungh zu Prag”, who was himself an outstanding cellist and chamber musician. At the premiere performance of his much-loved D Minor Piano trio in Leipzig in 1840, Mendelssohn took the piano part himself. The flute often replaces the violin part in this work — indeed, this variation was authorised by the composer himself, and it is considered one of the finest in the chamber music repertoire of lyrical, romantic pieces.

Vienna premiere. After its first performance in August 2022, in Haydn’s own Lower Austria, this evening marks the Vienna premiere of the new Erlkings programme. Inspired by Haydn’s Lied “Eine sehr gewöhnliche Geschichte” (A very common story), for the first time THE ERLKINGS include several Lieder by Joseph Haydn alongside their more familiar material of Lieder by Franz Schubert. Translated into modern English, and arranged for a highly unusual ensemble comprising voice, guitar, cello, tuba, drums and vibraphone, Haydn’s Lieder sound like they never have before. Set sail with THE ERLKINGS on a musical journey. Come along and enjoy “a most unusual story”, and other surprises!

For Schubert , the “Winterreise” was “a cycle of gruesome Lieder”. From a modern viewpoint, it is an existential gaze deep into the soul, and one of the most powerful Lieder created during the Romantic. Michael Schade joins young artists to perform the work, which is complemented by poetry from the Biedermeier period. .

Pinocchio is a fidget. His mind is always somewhere else. He’s noisy and excited. He disturbs and disrupts the other children. He talks constantly. And he never listens. Pinocchio really gets on everybody’s nerves, and is always putting himself at risk. At the same time, he is very open and outgoing. He is creative and enthusiastic. So why does he keep wandering around, instead of going home to Gepetto? Is he just going where the fancy takes him? Is he protecting himself from something? Is he a hyperactive child? In the end, what he turns out to be is someone who rescues his own father. And in that moment of taking responsibility, he comes of age.

A world-famous masterpiece, a world premiere, and a gem amongst string quartets which the world seems to have forgotten. KV 590 in F Major is the last string quartet that Mozart composed. Most unusually for Mozart, he spent a long time polishing the piece, eventually creating one of the most profound and fascinating works in the genre. The Minetti Quartet continue their highly successful collaboration with composer Ángela Tröndle with the premiere performance of her second String Quartet. This is followed by Fritz Kreisler’s String Quartet in A Minor. Written in tribute to all the composers and violin virtuosi of Vienna, this early 20th century masterpiece is played so rarely nowadays that this performance also has something of a premiere feel.

Maria Radutu’s debut album “Joujoux” is a story narrated through the medium of piano, a story which takes us to different places in European musical history and leads us through different styles of European music. The former child prodigy built her programme around Mihail Jora’s delicate piano suite “Joujoux pour ma Dame”. First performed in Vienna in 1924, the suite comprises five short, dance-like seductive puzzles, in which Jora captures the most diverse musical styles of his time. Radutu takes the concept one step further. She adds some scintillating Ravel, and a pulsating Bartok; an energetic Chopin, with a deep, emotional Liszt; and a fine, minimalist Schönberg, followed by a Ligeti etude with an emphatic groove. Her playing seems to transform the keys into fascinating toys: “Joujoux”   The pre-concert wine tasting: VINS DE VIVRE – Joujoux is a project Maria developed in her youth, and is her most frequently performed programme. The wines selected for this first concert in her new series promise to match Joujoux in their energy, freshness and brilliance. 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.

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. She has spent years working with people who are new to singing, including her involvement in “1. Wiener ich kann nicht singen Chor” (First Vienna ‘I can’t sing’ Choir). Through a variety of simple exercises, she soon makes sure that everyone forgets their shyness and discovers the joy of singing. 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. Accompanied by a small ensemble, they get to sing modern songs designed to make children’s daily lives a little easier and a bit more fun: songs for bath-time, songs for cleaning your teeth, and songs to comfort children when they’re unhappy. So aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends are all very welcome to come along and join in the singing. The children’s brothers and sisters can also come down to MAMMA PAPA MIA and enjoy a room filled with music. 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 and very varied concert.

When we experience the magic of the theatre, with all the wonderful music and set designs which carry us off to another world — what’s going on in the background? How do the acoustics work? What equipment is hidden behind, below and above the stage? What skills does a sound engineer need? What clever tricks are used to create all those marvellous 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. This exciting guided tour reveals all the hidden technology that lies behind every concert and every theatrical event. And once the tour is over, you can have a go at the controls of the lighting and sound desks yourself. We’ll set up all the equipment, ready for a concert!

Laugh-out-loud comedy should not seek to shut out melancholy. This is clearly demonstrated in the new programme from Elena Uhligs & Fritz Karls, which also explores every facet of that inexhaustible topic, love. The trials and tribulations of being passionately in love, the often grotesquely comic aberrations of married life, the pains of breaking up — and the oddly cheerful interludes which sometimes accompany a separation: all are covered here. No aspect has been overlooked. Former member of the Vienna Boys’ Choir Fritz Karl and Instagram star Elena Uhlig invite their audience to join them in a celebration of love and laughter.

The saxophone can play much more than jazz. But to bring this out fully requires new music from composers such as Bernhard Lang and Javier Quislant. Preinfalk holds both of them in high esteem – and he responds to them as a composer, as well as a musician.

Have you ever been to a Milonga? A dance where they play nothing but Argentinian tango music? After three or four “Tandas”, or tango sets, the dancers all change partners. This takes place during the “Cortina”, an interlude in which the tango DJ can play whatever they like - as long as it’s not suitable for dancing! Although there may well be some couples who really don’t want to be split up... The “Tango5” transform MuTh into Buenos Aires. They play “Tango Nuevo” using the same instrumentation that was used in the original Piazzolla versions, but mix it with some of their own contributions. Sophie Heinrich plays some Bach; Maria Radutu performs Villa-Lobos; Miloš Todorovski, on bandoneon, plays his own music; Andrea Wild accompanies herself on guitar; and Ivaylo Iordanov plays some surprising double bass. A concert and a Milonga. Totally irresistible!

Once upon a time ...there was a very clever cat, whose wit and cunning gained him not only land and a castle, but also the hand of a beautiful princess. Hans was the poor son of a miller. When his father died, Hans wasn’t bequeathed a mill or a mule like his brothers; all he inherited was a cat. Bemoaning his fate, Hans was thinking of skinning the cat for its fur. But then he had a big surprise. Not only could the cat talk - he even asked for a pair of boots and a large sack. And he promised Hans that he would bring him good fortune! How did Puss in Boots manage all this? Come along and find out!

His encounters with Mary, Joseph and the shepherds open his eyes to what the Bible story of the birth of Jesus really aims to tell us, and prepare him for his personal meeting with the baby in the crib. The narrator, Julian Loidl, assumes a wide range of roles. Time and again he manages to surprise the audience and touch the hearts of young and old alike. At his side are a pair of musicians who are capable of serving up every musical style — including rap. And then there are the friendly, affectionate animated characters.

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.

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.

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!

  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.

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. She has spent years working with people who are new to singing, including her involvement in “1. Wiener ich kann nicht singen Chor” (First Vienna ‘I can’t sing’ Choir). Through a variety of simple exercises, she soon makes sure that everyone forgets their shyness and discovers the joy of singing. 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. Accompanied by a small ensemble, they get to sing modern songs designed to make children’s daily lives a little easier and a bit more fun: songs for bath-time, songs for cleaning your teeth, and songs to comfort children when they’re unhappy. So aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends are all very welcome to come along and join in the singing. The children’s brothers and sisters can also come down to MAMMA PAPA MIA and enjoy a room filled with music. 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 and very varied concert.

“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.

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.

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.

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!

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 embraces Gesualdo’s mystical, spiritual “Spheres”, the passionate rhythms and cantilenas of Bernstein, and new riff-driven compositions from Matthias Bartolomey. The players are drawn from Bartolomey’s colleagues and students. Their playing demonstrates not only an orchestral power and intensity, but also a subtlety and intimacy more usually 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”.

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. This is the first time that the full CD programme has been performed live, and it is taking place right here in Vienna.

“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. No matter whether historically under Roman rule, in Moorish Spain, or in the Jewish shtetlekh of Eastern Europe, or right up to the present day in Israel and all Jewish communities around the world, the Sabbath is observed week after 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.

A reading from ALESSANDRO BARICCO’S monologue “Novecento”, with dramatic effects and lots of music. 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.

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.

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 experience the magic of the theatre, with all the wonderful music and set designs which carry us off to another world — what’s going on in the background? How do the acoustics work? What equipment is hidden behind, below and above the stage? What skills does a sound engineer need? What clever tricks are used to create all those marvellous 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. This exciting guided tour reveals all the hidden technology that lies behind every concert and every theatrical event. And once the tour is over, you can have a go at the controls of the lighting and sound desks yourself. We’ll set up all the equipment, ready for a concert!

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. She has spent years working with people who are new to singing, including her involvement in “1. Wiener ich kann nicht singen Chor” (First Vienna ‘I can’t sing’ Choir). Through a variety of simple exercises, she soon makes sure that everyone forgets their shyness and discovers the joy of singing. 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. Accompanied by a small ensemble, they get to sing modern songs designed to make children’s daily lives a little easier and a bit more fun: songs for bath-time, songs for cleaning your teeth, and songs to comfort children when they’re unhappy. So aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends are all very welcome to come along and join in the singing. The children’s brothers and sisters can also come down to MAMMA PAPA MIA and enjoy a room filled with music. 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.

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

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!
