About the Event

Listen to a concert on the new Giant Organ at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna!

Mighty sounds from more than 12,000 pipes fill one of the most beautiful churches in the world. In the organ concerts, world‐class international organists play a wide‐ranging programme from Bach over Reger to gems of organ music.

The Giant Organ (130 stops) in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral, which has not been playable for 25 years, has been renewed by the organ building company Rieger from the Austrian federal state of Vorarlberg and connected to the choir organ (55 stops) in the front area of St. Stephen's Cathedral, which was also built by Rieger in 1991. The connection of the two organs will make it possible for the first time in the history of the cathedral to fill the space with a multi‐dimensional sound, from a central console with five manuals and now a remarkable 185 stops.

    Un concerto assolutamente imperdibile! L'aria magica della chiesa di Santo Stefano rende ancora più emozionante qualsiasi concerto.

    Konzert war sehr schön und hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Sänger sollten mehr im Vordergrund stehen! Beim Einlass in den Stephansdom war es chaotisch und sollte besser organisiert sein.

    Whilst the music was nice it was extremely cold and very late. I was expecting it to be much more ornate in the church. It was not as festive as I was hoping.

    We really enjoyed the concert. Venue stunning and music sounded fantastic. The staff working at the event weren’t so helpful. As my husband and I walked to the entrance of the cathedral we had come in by (I wanted to light a candle in the cathedral) we were stopped by a member of staff who told us “You’ve paid for the show, not the tour” and we were abruptly told to leave by the side exit. We understand staff need to direct people to the correct exit however her manner was rude and brought our mood down after such a wonderful performance. Maybe staff would benefit from lessons in politeness/kindness?

    Wonderful. An unforgettable experience. Soprano soloist was outstanding and trumpet player also. It is a pity so many people were holding up camera phones to film and spoiling the view. I could not see very much in the second sector. But musically a very enjoyable experience.

    The choir sand beautifully and were all dressed in their finery. Sadly the same could not be said for the conductor, he looked like he had on an old comfortable suit with shoes that hadn't seen polish since they were bought.

    The performers were very good, but the moderation was too sales‐oriented: it was very frustrating to have to listen repeatedly about the promoted CD and the ramblings of the moderator and the politicians instead of the beautiful music.

    Es fehlte die Ansage, welche Stücke gespielt werden, die Musiker saßen stumm auf Ihrem Stuhl und spielten ihre Stücke herunter.
