Friday Afternoons Concert by the Vienna Boys "Choir / A Vienna Boys" Choir/Mondial production

Vienna Boys' Choir

 

In 1498, when Maximilian I. relocated his court music to Vienna and decreed that the musicians should include six boy singers, it probably didn’t occur to him that, over the following 500 years, this ensemble would grow to an institution comprising four travelling choirs and a hundred boy choristers.

Travelling forms part of the education of the Vienna Boys’ Choir; as they rack up the miles, they collect music on their way. And you can hear this music first-hand at MuTh, in these ”Friday Afternoons” sessions. They perform their travelling repertoire with an exuberant charm, presenting a range that stretches from the medieval to the modern: not only Haydn and Schubert, but Broadway hits and Michael Jackson too. And the arrangements are varied as well; a capella, with piano accompaniment, with drums or with an orchestra.

The MuTh concert hall’s architecture and acoustic guarantee you an unforgettable experience. The audience are seated right in the middle of the music-making, and the choristers’ enthusiasm is highly contagious.

Musik & Theater Muth

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.
