Musical affinities of soul and blood

TrioVanBeethoven in the MuTh Concert

Felix Mendelssohn was a highly respected musician of his time. Perhaps the only dark chapter is the suppression of his sister Fanny's musical development. Now, of course, this is due in the highest degree to the time and its practices at that time. But Felix is very late - almost too late! - accept the great talent of his sister and even promote it a little.

In addition to this blood relationship, the soul relationship between Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff characterizes this "relationship evening". Here the famously proverbial "Russian soul" becomes deeply palpable. The unity of the two selected works can also be seen in the fact that Rachmaninoff in his one-movement trio alludes directly to the first movement of the Tchaikovsky trio.


Fanny Mendelssohn: Piano Trio op. 11
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Piano trio in A minor op. 50, 1st movement
Sergei Rachmaninoff: Trio Élégiaque No. 1 in G Minor
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy: Piano Trio in D minor op. 49

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.
