To the concert

Vienna in Berlin

We have a tradition of paying tribute to great musicians. This season for the first time, we honour an entire orchestra: the Vienna Philharmonic – one of the world's most famous orchestras which has long been associated with the Konzerthaus.

The Gruffelo

For more than 20 years, the story of the clever mouse that invents the "gruffalo" to scare away its predators, has been a worldwide success. Now the popular children's book has inspired our Honorary Conductor Iván Fischer to compose a children's opera.

We leave behind the belaboured frontiers between “serious” and “light” music, provide you with refreshing concerts during your lunchbreaks or jazz during Rush Hour. Discover our concert formats!

Mittendrin – Right in the Middle

Pick your favourite spot in the midst of the orchestra – the musicians of the Konzerthausorchester will rearrange themselves for you. Experience the music up close and feel the unique connection between the musicians and the conductor, when the music comes to life. After the concert you can ask Iván Fischer questions about almost anything.

2 x hören – Hear it Twice

A work is presented – perhaps without previous knowledge, in any case without a programme booklet or an introduction. Afterwards, our emcees and artists will talk about the background and characteristics of the work, which will then be played for a second time.

We leave behind the belaboured frontiers between “serious” and “light” music to present pop stars, famous jazz artists, the big names of electronic music and world music talents. All convincing musicians who cross cultural borders – the classics of the 21st century.
