Flute trio Bartolomeys in the MuTh

Bartolomeys in the MuTh Concert


Both Mendelssohn and Weber ensured the flute gained an established place in the chamber music literature of the High Romantic . Mendelssohn’s Opus 49 is usually played as a piano trio, but the composer also approved it as a piece for flute. With Weber, the situation was reversed; he was so pleased with his trio for flute that he adapted it for violin. But there is also a link here to the cello; Weber dedicated the piece to Philipp Jungh, a friend who was a doctor and a cellist. Linking the two trios is a sound-painting for flute and cello by the Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos, who played cello in the cafés and bars of Rio so he could work as an independent composer. Performing with Franz Bartolomey are the Vienna Philharmonic’s young flute soloist Silvia Careddu and Turkish pianist Ferhan Önder.


Carl Maria von Weber: Trio in G minor, Op. 63

Musik & Theater Muth

Vienna‘s new venue for music and theatre – the Vienna Boys’ Choir Concert Hall in the Augarten – opens in December 2012!

MuTh is located in Vienna´s Augarten park, nor far from Augarten Palace where the choir boys leave and rehearse.

An exciting new venue has sprung up in the heart of Vienna, a place with a focus on young people where music and theatre meet.
The new stage is equipped to the highest standards, and the auditorium has seating for 400 people. The stage measures 12 x 9 metres. It has an optimally designed orchestra pit and the finest acoustic in the city
Here in this new hotspot for music and theatre you can experience the Vienna Boys’ Choir performing live, rock and jazz concerts, drama, and many more cultural events.

Concert hall capacity: 400
Stage: 12 x 9 m
Orchestra pit: 12 x 3.5 m
Wheelchair accessible, 4 wheelchair spaces
Architects: archipel architektur+kommunikation

The building is a unique ensemble of existing baroque structures (the gatehouse and wall) and modern architecture. At the heart of MuTh is the new Concert Hall. Contrasting with the coolness of the glass and metal used in the exterior of the new construction, warm materials and strong colours are used in the Hall. The magnificent ambient sound – enriched through the use of acoustic panels and special seating – is particularly noteworthy.

A café, shop and a seminar room complete the overall MuTh experience.
