Classic in the Crypt: Brahms, Strauss & Leclair

About the Event

In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music by Johannes Brahms, Jean‐Marie Leclair and Johann Strauss at Vienna's treasured and world‐renowned Peterskirche.

These two exceptional artists occupy a special place in the ranks of extraordinary female instrumentalists. Both Tomoko Mayeda and Miharo Gartmayer are in demand internationally and perform regularly on major stages. In the intimate setting of the crypt, they perform with virtuosity and elegance.
Tomoko Mayeda shares a deep love for Brahms. Her connection to the great composer is particularly evident in the Sonata for Piano and Violin No. 2 in A major op. 100, which can also be heard on her latest recording dedicated to him.
Located deep beneath St. Peter's Church in Vienna, the unusual concert hall offers new access to classical music for newcomers and connoisseurs alike.
