About the Event
Enjoy an evening full of Viennese Music by attending at a wonderful Strauss and Mozart concert in the Kursalon of Vienna, the very place where Johann Strauss himself used to direct his orchestra from the position of first violin.
The Salonorchester Alt Wien, one of the best‐known interpreters of classical Viennese music in Vienna, presents an evening full of Viennese charm with the lilting sound of waltzes, polkas, arias and duets as well as operetta and piano concerto melodies. Accompanied by excellent opera vocalists and our enchanting ballet soloists, Vienna's classical music reveals itself as a living firework display for all the senses. The musical make‐up of the Salon Orchestra enables it to play without a conductor, and nevertheless to do complete justice to the symphonic fullness of the music. The way that the musicians listen to each other's playing and the constant musical dialogue generate a cheerful energy that is transmitted directly to the audience. This special style of music‐making goes right back to the days of Johann Strauss, who led his orchestra from the position of the first violin.
The Vienna Kursalon is a respected and beloved rendezvous for events in exclusive surroundings. Built according to the plans of Johann Garben, the Kursalon was intended to increase the recreational value of Vienna's City Park by offering curative waters to drink. The Kursalon, with its dances and promenade concerts, rapidly became the meeting place for Viennese society, who celebrated the cult of the waltz and joie de vivre. After recent restauration, the venue now sparkles in renewed splendor, inviting audiences to experience the musical pleasures that have thrilled visitors since the famed Promenade Concerts of the brothers Strauss.
