A homage to Franz von Suppé
Debut concert by the “con fuoco” chamber orchestra

Gold rush at MuTh!

The con fuoco chamber orchestra and Svetoslav Borisov have started digging for gold in Vienna’s long-forgotten operettas. Here they demonstrate Suppé’s ability to synthesise different elements in his instrumentations and arrangements. These were a big success in 1860, when Viennese operetta was born at the Theater an der Wien. In his one-act piece “Das Pensionat” (The Boarding School), Franz von Suppé blended French esprit, Viennese burlesque and the flavours of Italy. He gave Vienna’s answer to Paris’s discovery of Cologne-born composer Jacques Offenbach.

You can expect a colourful, charming merry-go-round of little-known overtures, character pieces and rare treasures from the very earliest days of Viennese operetta!
