Reunion with our artists in residence

Meet our former artists in residence in a new series

Violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, who has slipped off her pink-silk concert slippers behind her next to the conductor's podium. Sitting barefoot at the edge of the stage, she plays an encore with our then chief conductor Iván Fischer, who has a piano wheeled right in front of the stage for the occasion. Countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, who arrives in the middle of the Corona period to sing Pergolesi's “Stabat Mater” as a soloist in a Good Friday stream with the Konzerthausorchester in the empty, atmospherically lit hall. Or the Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson, who always looks a bit like a priest on his way to the altar when he approaches the grand piano on stage. He then captivates the audience with Bach, Mozart, Grieg or Glass, whether alone or with the Konzerthausorchester. 

We have often heard from you how vividly our artists in residence and their performances are remembered, for example when concert memories were exchanged at the bar in the Beethoven Hall after short concerts. Time and again, we heard how much you had come to appreciate these artists musically and personally over the course of their season-long residency - and that we should definitely invite them back! 

We have taken this to heart and launched a new series: For intensive concerts, we would like to invite our “alumni” to perform in small ensembles or with a recital in the Great Hall. And because our artists in residence felt very much at home with us and with you, three of them have already confirmed their participation for the 2024/25 season!
