Klangberührt 2022

Listening anew


British saxophonist Jess Gillam caused a sensation with her debut at the Wiener Konzerthaus in January 2023. Nicholas McCarthy, Franziska Fleischanderl and the duo Spaemann & Bakanic complete the musical cloverleaf: these artists offer people with and without disabilities barrier-free access to music in four inclusive concerts. With the »klangberührt« format, the Wiener Konzerthaus is making its visitors a very special offer: the distance between the podium and the audience is reduced and the traditional rules of the concert schedule are suspended. This creates a space in which concertgoers can spontaneously articulate their feelings and emotions.



Compact concerts and relaxed endings are the successful concept of the »Fridays@7« cycle with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. Audience favourite Rudolf Buchbinder begins with the virtuoso Burleske by Richard Strauss, one of his favourite pieces, followed by the monumental 2nd Symphony by Jean Sibelius. Only slightly younger than Sibelius and also a friend of his was Ferruccio Busoni, whose »Idomeneo« paraphrase opens a particularly interesting Mozart evening under the direction of chief conductor Petr Popelka. The concert continues with a Slavic programme - Alexander Melnikov is the soloist in Sergei Rachmaninoff's rousing Paganini Rhapsody. The soloist in the last concert of the cycle is Sol Gabetta with the popular 1st Cello Concerto by Camille Saint-Saëns.


Moderated concerts

Although music is a universal language, it can sometimes be helpful within the context of a concert to use words to explore and illuminate the background to and possible interpretations of pieces of music. If famous moderators, or perhaps the musicians themselves find the right words to explain the works  in family concerts and matinees, then they can help »sharpen« your ears for, say, new compositions.
