About the Event
In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music by Tchaikovsky, Sibelius and Thorvaldsdottir at Vienna's treasured and world‐renowned Wiener Musikverein.
The Wiener Musikverein is one of the world's great concert halls. The home of the Vienna Philarmonic Orchestra and the centre of Viennese musical life, the building was opened in 1870 as a part of an ambitious plan to create an elegant cultural boulevard along the Ringstrasse. Designed in the Neo‐Classical style to resemble an Ancient Greek temple, the Great Hall of the Musikverein is deemed to be one of the best music halls in the world thanks to its impeccable acoustics.
In 2004 four new halls were added to the building. The Austrian architect Wilhelm Holzbauer recognised the aesthetic importance of the existing building and sought out ways to echo the style in a modern language of form. Each of the four New Halls focuses on a different material — glass, metal, stone, and wood.
- Thorvaldsdottir, Anna – Metacosmos
- Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilyich – Konzert für Violine und Orchester D‐Dur op. 35
