Authentic concerts with "Orchestra 1756" performed on period instruments

 

St. Charles Church (Karlskirche) is not only the Viennese branch of the Knights of the Cross with 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 performances with works by Mozart and Vivaldi. It is also the home of 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 Orchestra 1756 (on period instruments). All together there are more than 40 musicians on stage. You will not find another concert more profound, nor one as true to the ways of Mozart, than what can be offered through us in Vienna.

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 St. Charles Church at “Spittaler Gottesacker“ (God's Acre). Today, neither the cemetery with Vivaldi's grave, nor Mozart's grave, exist. The Technical University was built on the grounds of the former cemetery. A simple stone plaque on the building commemorates Vivaldi's brilliance in composing.

The so called FOUR SEASONS are a compilation of four revolutionary violin concerts. Four poems - which might've been 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 more spectacular impressions.
