Classical Viennese Concert

We ended our day in Vienna by attending a concert at Wiener Konzerthaus. This concert house opened in 1913.


Mozart was giving us a serious look at we passed by.

Our concert was held in Mozart Hall. There are two other concert halls in the building and concerts can be held simultaneously since each hall is soundproofed.




There were opera singers too and they were wonderful!



Taking a bow.

Returning for an encore!

Again, your photography is stunning and so much so that I almost feel as if I'd attended that concert. I loved your shots of the building - it's incredibly beautiful! And you got some great upfront photos of the players. I thought it interesting that most of them were men with just a few women scattered about. What an experience this must have been and now you have all these superb photos to remember it by. Thanks so much for sharing!

I've never been to a classical concert before.

I'm not sure hwo it is in Euorpe, but in American it's often very donation-heavy. The New York Symphony could sell out every seat and still lose money
