From the house of styriarte
The source of all human life is female. Sure, the lords of creation have spent thousands of years constructing an entire philosophical and theological arsenal of arguments to obscure this simple fact or to increase their own significance.

A wonderful programme and also big news the new season will offer you:
- For our great orchestra cycle we have appointed six conductors – three gentlemen and three ladies.
- We have dreamt up a brand-new idea, called BIG.SOAP. An easygoing concert format with TV attributes.
- We also present our Baroque orchestra series at the Minoritensaal. This will be the fourth season of these stirring concerts on period instruments.
