Mozart in Pragshare on facebook A concert at Planetensaal followed by a picnic in the palace park
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Harmoniemusik from “Le nozze di Figaro”, K 492 (arranged by Johann Nepomuk Wendt) and “La clemenza di Tito”, K 621 (arranged by Josef Triebensee)
Viennese “Harmoniemusik” did not start with Mozart. Fux had already given the most magnificent arias to the oboes, bassoons and early clarinets in his “Julo Ascanio”. This is what Alfredo Bernardini and his colleagues from Zefiro want to demonstrate in the 2018 styriarte Baroque opera. In between, they treat themselves to an intermezzo at Schloss Eggenberg: namely with “Harmoniemusik” from Prague, based on Mozart’s operas. Played by eight wind musicians, “The Marriage of Figaro” sounds just as excellent as Mozart’s last Prague opera “La clemenza di Tito”. Of course, we will have a picnic after the concert again – after all, “Harmoniemusik” has always been music for feasts as well.
After the concert in the “Planetensaal”, food, cold drinks and basic seating will be awaiting out on the grass. Tickets for a picnic box (15EUR) are only available in advance at our ticket centre or in our Webshop. Weather permitting, the picnic will be outdoors. Should it be raining, we will be happy to pack your picnic for you to enjoy at home. If you wish to bring your own picnic basket, we will be happy to look after it for you in the cloakroom while you are enjoying the concert.
