On TA Vienna Forum, this attraction is often discouraged by regular contributors. They believe that everyone should attend a longer, more formal and more expensive concert at the symphony or opera house. I believe that this is a good experience for visitors who want a taste of classical music in an intimate venue. The musicians are highly trained and some are members of the symphony as well. 75 minutes of music is a good introduction for non-classical music lovers, as previous reviewer MerWineland has stated.
Sala Terrena is located within the convent of the Deutsche Ritterorden, built in the late 18th century. It's around the corner from the Mozart Haus museum. The beautifully decorated chamber, lends itself perfectly to the short musical evening. Having musicians playing in such close proximity is an experience that I'll never forget. Every bit of bowing, plucking and string instrument technique is accentuated. One truly appreciates the musician's skill.
Having just arrived into town after a long journey, we thought we might doze off during the concert. On the contrary! I sat at the edge of my seat for 75 minutes, reveling in the magic of the evening.
