RESOUND Chamber Off the MuTh / Chamber music by Beethoven’ at Palais Lobkowitz / Orchester Wiener Akademie

* abgespielt

The Orchester Wiener Akademie renders the authentic, original sound of Beethoven’s music, performing in settings where it was originally heard. RESOUND Chamber is the chamber music offshoot from Orchester Wiener Akademie’s sensational RESOUND Beethoven series. Under the baton of conductor Martin Haselböck, the orchestra plays Beethoven’s wonderful music on instruments which date from the time of its composition, and brings the music back to those marvellous theatres and concert rooms where it was premiered and had its very earliest performances. Audience and orchestra are re-positioned into their original placements, which may often seem unusual when compared with current practice. All this serves to replicate the original sound – so very different to our modern ears – and bring it back to life. It leads us into a unique space/sound experience, and achieves new heights of intensity and authenticity.

Hear Beethoven’s scintillating chamber music in a variety of orchestrations, such as his “Gassenhauer” Trio, his Archduke Trio, his much-loved violin sonatas, and his famous “Tempest” sonata for solo piano. And, just before Valentine’s day, enjoy the touching melody of “An die ferne Geliebte” (To the distant beloved), a well as a few rare oddities, including the Eyeglass Duo.

This concert is not taking place at MuTh, but in Palais Lobkowitz (Theatermuseum)
, in the “Eroica Saal”, Lobkowitzplatz 2, Vienna 1010
