Experience an unforgettable evening in Vienna’s famous and beautiful Palais Auersperg. Enjoy wonderful interpretations of Viennese classics with tickets to a concert by the Vienna Residence Orchestra, one of the best chamber orchestras in the world.
What to Expect
The Vienna Residence Orchestra is one of the best chamber orchestras in the world. Each individual musician is a renowned soloist, and the orchestra performs in great concert halls around the world. Mexico City, Montevideo, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Athens, and Budapest are just some of the places that the VRO has visited with its guest conductor Rudolf Nurejev.
Under the musical leadership of Prof Christian Pollack and guest conductors Gerhard Lagrange, Daniel-Hoyem Cavazza and Zoltán Janikovic, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra plays concerts every day in the most beautiful Viennese palaces: in small and large groups, with famous opera singers, ballet dancers, and musical delights that match the appropriate seasonal theme. The VRO’s Mozart and Strauss concerts are one of the cultural highlights of any journey to Vienna.
The Vienna Residence Orchestra combines an interesting parallel with Wolfgang A. Mozart, since the orchestra’s home is the very place where Mozart performed some of his most remarkable concerts. The magnificent Palais Auersperg in Baroque style is one of the focal points of European music, political, and social history. In addition to Mozart, Joseph Haydn and Christoph Willibald Gluck made their contribution to world music. The noble family Auersperg and the Swedish royal family Vasa also made political commitments at the Palais Auersperg and established their aristocratic splendor with lavish festivities. Today the Palais Auersperg and the Vienna Residence Orchestra is managed by Sylvia Moser, who enriches Vienna’s cultural life with these two institutions.
