Authentic concerts with "Orchestra 1756" performed on period instruments

 

St. Charles' Church (Karlskirche) is not only the Viennese branch of the Prague Order of the Crusaders of the Red Star but also one of the most impressive buildings in Vienna. In the last years it has developed to be one of the most outstanding concert venues in Vienna. The St. Charles' Church is a center for historically informed performance practice of works by Mozart and Vivaldi. It is also the home of the ORCHESTRA 1756 that regularly gives concerts here.

MOZART | REQUIEM KV 626

Orchestra 1756 (on period instruments), Soloists and Choir

St. Charles Church -  located just a few hundred meters from the place where Mozart died - is one of the most impressing and significant buildings in Vienna. Every saturday between March and December it presents itself as the ideal location to perform Mozart's last work - the REQUIEM.

The concerts are performed by the Choir and the Soloists of the Salzburg Concert Society as well as the Orchestra 1756 (on period instruments). All together there are more than 40 musicians on stage. In Vienna you will not find another concert to experience Mozart and his surrounding mystique in a more authentic, more profound or more typical way.

VIVALDI | the four seasons

Orchestra 1756 (on period Instruments) and Soloists

St. Charles Church was finished in 1737. Four years later on July 28th 1741 Venetian composer Antonio Vivaldi died in Vienna. He was buried just a few meters from Charles Church at “Spitaler God's Acre“. Today there is the building of the Technical University and just a small sign on it reminds us of Vivaldi. The grave and the bones are - like Mozart's - missing. 

The so called “Four Seasons“ is a compilation of four revolutionary violin concerts. Four poems maybe written by Vivaldi are the image of the composition which shows us furious thunder storms and flashes, breaking ice and twittering of birds, sleeping shepherds, barking dogs, a band of hunters and many spectacular impressions more.
