December 2023

Particularly before Christmas, many people seek the peace and contemplation of St. Stephen's Cathedral to prepare for the most beautiful time of the year. The Christmas concerts in St. Stephen's Cathedral invite you to pause for a while - moments when you can escape the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas period and return to the essential things in life.

These intimate evenings are filled with festive chamber music and the most beautiful Christmas songs, skillfully interpreted by the Harmonia Ensemble Vienna, soprano and baritone solos contribute to the contemplative atmosphere. Aside from playing in orchestras, the musicians of the Harmonia Ensemble Vienna perform with great efficacy and pleasure as a chamber ensemble, always with the aim of broadening their musical abilities and horizons. The musicians thus followed an old tradition, as is customary with established orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic.

On Advent Sundays, cathedral organists Ernst Wally and Konstantin Reymaier play Christmassy organ concerts with atmospheric classics as well as delicacies and highlights of organ music.

 Harmonia Ensemble Vienna

The Harmonia Ensemble Vienna was formed to pass on masterful interpretations to the next generation, to mix great experience with young esprit, to let the joy of making music together spill over to the audience and to prepare and arrange programs with great attention to detail.

The musicians of the ensemble consist of experienced chamber musicians who are and have been members of renowned string quartets and piano trios for many years - many of them teach at universities and music schools - , soloists with great successes in international competitions, and graduates, some of whom have studied with the experienced ensemble members. The ensemble can be expanded with wind and vocal soloists, which significantly enriches the repertoire.

In the Harmonia Ensemble, the musicians are united by the joy of making music together. For years they have supported the Vienna St. Stephen‘s Cathedral with their very successful Summer and Advent concerts.
