About the Event

Completed in 1737, just three years before Antonio Vivaldi moved to Vienna, St. Charles's Church (Karlskirche) in Vienna offers a uniquely fitting atmosphere for one of Vivaldi’s most brilliant compositions, 'The Four Seasons'.

Vivaldi composed the four spectacular violin concertos that comprise “The Four Seasons” a few years before moving from Italy to Vienna. The work musically illustrates the course of the year, recreating the sounds of furious thunder storms, breaking ice, and the twittering of birds. Vivaldi died in Vienna in 1741 and was buried just a few meters from St. Charles Church. His tomb is, like Mozart's, not preserved, his bones are missing. In contrast to the revered Mozart, only a simple stone tablet reminds of Vivaldi.

    Suptueux, magique et envoûtant ! Ce concert dans l'église St Charles de Vienne est un moment sensationnel. Un arrêt dans le temps et un voyage… Venir visiter Vienne sans passer par la case concert est inimaginable. On y est bien reçu, malgré le froid, on passe un chaleureux moment. A savoir que nos hôtes nous distribuent des plaies et que les bancs en bois de l'église sont chauffés. Moment tour simplement hors du temps et magique.

    Fantastic experience! The musicianship was superb. The venue was perfect. Our seats were 2nd row center… sadly a download of the ticket to a device was not sufficient and it was a bit of a hassle to get the voucher physically printed. Fortunately my German was up to the task.

    We really enjoyed the Vivaldi concert of The Four Seasons. The ticket process was easy for getting e‐tickets, and we were pleasantly surprised that we got assigned seats toward the front. The acoustics of the St. Charles Church were marvelous, and the musicians were superb. Our concert lasted 75 minutes, which is a perfect length for all ages after a long day of sight seeing. We highly recommend this venue; concert; and ticket outlet for listening to the beautiful classical music of Vienna.

    Потрясающий концерт , сочетание исполнения классической музыки и ауры храма завораживает!

  • Neera F, USA

    Jul 2019

    Absolutely delightful! Words cannot describe how incredible this talent was. The music was beautiful & moving. The singer soloist & violin soloist were both wonderful. The small orchestra was amazing. We have thoroughly enjoyed the classical music concerts we have attended in Vienna. We were in section A, but I do not think there was a bad seat. You may not be able to see as well if you are in the back but the sound would be just as beautiful. Just outside the church is an outdoor amphitheater with food vendors. It looked like a nice place to spend some time.

    想像以上のレベルの演奏で、満足しました。 残念だったのは、会場が教会なので無理もありませんが、 座席の区分が明確では無いため、座席案内されたあとに、 空いていたワンランク上の席に移動されたカップルがいました。 席案内の係は気付かず、私が説明すると男性は案内された席に戻りましたが、 女性はそのままで、コンサートが始まってしまいました。 一列、空けて配置する等、改善は可能だと思います。
