Resonanzen

Since 1993, the Wiener Konzerthaus has been organising a Festival of Early Music entitled «Resonanzen» which, right from the start, turned out to be the most successful programme of events presented by this house. Every year in the last week of January, ensembles and performers of international renown come together to give ten concerts which each season focus on a different theme and range from solo recitals to concert performances of operatic works. This comprehensive and varied programme has proved very popular with its audience and is further enhanced by film showings, discussions with the performers, lectures and an exhibition of international instrument makers which has now become one of the major exhibitions of its kind.
