St. Anne's Church

The history of Saint Anne´s Church (Annakirche) can be traced back to 1320, though the cuurrent church was consecrated in 1518. Initially a gothic building, the Jesuit order added baroque elements to the design. The interior is decorated with stunning frescoes by Daniel Gran, with ornate altarpieces, and carved statues. No wonder Annakirche is considered to be one of the most beautiful baroque churches in Vienna! Within the Annakirche's walls, a dreamy atmosphere and great acoustics make this church an ideal place for classical concerts. Chamber music by Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven is popular with locals and tourists alike, and is often played on historical instruments.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Perhaps the most important composer of all time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an Austrian composer of the late 18th century. Born in 1756 in Salzburg, he showed prodigious musical talent from childhood. Beginning at five years of age, he composed more than 600 works, including concertos, symphonies, religious works and operas before his premature death at the age of 35. Hi influence over successive generations cannot be overestated - Ludwig van Beethoven wrote of Mozart "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years”. Despite the immense success of his compositions, and the acclaim he received across Europe, Mozart achieved little financial security and rwas buried in an unmarked grave in Vienna's St Marx Cemetery.

Franz Schubert

During his rather short life, Franz Schubert, one of the fathers of romanticism in music, had always been an unappreciated genius who had never received public acclaim. Only his family and friends were delighted by his music, and most of his works were discovered and published only many years after his death. Franz Schubert was born on the 31th of March 1797 in the suburbs of Vienna. His father and eldest brother were amateur musicians and they taught him to play piano and violin. At the age of 11 Schubert was a singer in a choir at the Lichtenthal parish and later auditioned for Antonio Salieri and admitted to the emperor’s choir. During that period young Franz started composing his own works. However, after his voice broke he had to leave the choir and in 1814 he started working as a teacher in the same parish school as his father. He never stopped composing and 4 years later he decided to quit teaching and devote his life completely to music. He fell out with his father because of that and struggled to make ends meet. In 1818 Schubert went to Vienna, where he met Vogl. Together they gave private concerts in small aristocratic circles, mainly playing Lieder, which Schubert wrote around 600. Franz Schubert gave only one big public concert in his whole life in March 1828, which was very warmly received by the audience. However, his health was deteriorating and in November the same year he died of thyroid fever at the age of 31.

Ludwig van Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven was a German pianist and composer of the late 18th century. He is well known as the most influential composers of all time as well as crucial figure to the Classical music scene. In fact, he demonstrated his musical talent at an early age, taking lessons from his father and composer/conductor Christian Gottlob Neefe. Later, he moved to Vienna where he gained the reputation of a virtuoso pianist by composing his popular masterpieces. He created his most admired works in his last 15 years of life, all the while being almost completely deaf.

    L'église est petite mais de toute beauté et les musiciens sont bons. J'ai passé une très bonne soirée. Tout au plus une légère déception dans l'ouverture du Barbier de Séville qui clôturait le programme. Jouer cette pièce en quatuor à cordes il fallait oser même si les vents manquent mais quelques accrocs vers la fin ont un peu terni le sans faute des précédents morceaux. A recommander sans hésitation.
