The Stefaniensaal is often called the small brother of the “Golden Hall” of the Vienna Musikverein.
This magnificent concert hall, which is one of the most beautiful and acoustically best concert halls of the world, is located in the heart of the “Congress Graz” building.
It was built between 1905 and 1908 according to the plans by Leopold Theyer. The hall has a rich stuccoed ceiling and presents portraits of fourteen famous composers in Grisaille style painted by Julius Schmid. This concert hall, which has a capacity of 1,100 persons, is the venue for concerts of recreation – Großes Orchester Graz. It was also the setting for several styriarte musical recordings with Nikolaus Harnoncourt who especially liked the high acoustic quality of the Stefaniensaal.
Did you know that on the portrait of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy "1956" can be read? Due to his Jewish origin his portrait was scraped off during the Nazi era, and it was not restored until 1956.
