During our 1 week trip to Austria, we had the privilege of attending 3 concerts. Here's a few things we learnt along the way.

1) Mozart Quartett @ Salzburg Palace Marble Hall. Beautiful but small room. We paid €38 each for Category 1 assigned seats on the third row but the cheaper Cat 2 free seating was probably good enough to see the musicians including harpsichord. There's an Asian female lead violinist who played so well. Tip: Don't clap at every pause in the performance. Applause should be at the end of music piece. You can tell by the half hearted weak applause that you're clapping at the wrong time. Look to the experienced local concert goers for cue to clap.

2) The ultimate highlight was watching Mariss Jansons at the young age of 74 conducting the Vienna Philharmonic at Musikverein. The Musikverein is an impressive and fitting venue for musicians who played in such unison and so perfectly that when we attend other concerts they will likely pale in comparison against the Vienna Philharmonic. Concert goers for Vienna Philharmonic were dressed formally even for matinees and very knowledgeable. Mariss Jansons not only conducted the Vienna Philharmonic but also the audience. Hold your breath and don't move during the performance till Mariss completely finishes. It's that magical. We paid €98 for seats which were so worth it.

3) Wiener Mozart Orchester @ Musikverein. Do arrive early. You will get dirty looks at the snobby lot at Musikverein but a wry smile m the violinist at Salzburg. We paid €85 each for the evening performance and had the front row balcony seats which requires us to lean forward to see the performance. You will need to stand if not in the front row as did many who sat behind us. Although at the same venue as the Vienna Philharmonic, this performance is so different. More audience participation with the conductor encouraging the crowd to clap in sync with the music. More touristy so if you're a concert purist, this is definitely not for you. From the balcony we could see the ushers trying their best to stop people of all races taking photos and warning one over enthusiastic conductor wannabe from waving his hand. More familiar classical music pieces which transports you back in time when performed by musicians and singers dressed in period costume.

We attended a performance by Orchestra 1756 at the Marble Hall of the Mirabell Palace where they played Mozart and Vivaldi (The Four Seasons). What a terrific experience! After spending time at the Mozart birthplace earlier and being educated on details of his life, to be able to hear his music played on period instruments in a venue he actually performed in was just surreal.

The room itself is ornately decorated and the gold just glitters throughout. You could really transport yourself to the time Mozart lived and imagine being there as he played.

The venue was entirely full. We bought Category 1 online but rather short notice and were kind of far back. That said, the room is small enough with good acoustics such that there is no need for microphones and every seat is a good one. It is a little hard to figure out where to exchange the vouchers for tickets (hint: right upstairs at the entrance to the Marble Hall). They offer refreshments at the intermission. There are different groups performing different programs each night but all of them include some Mozart (of course). We thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend this.

Last night we had reserved seats for the concert. When we arrived we were shown to seats to the very far side of the room not in the middle where all the other seats were. When I explained that we had paid extra for reserved seats in the first 5 rows we were treated very rudely. The woman even took our tickets from us and returned our money. Since we really wanted to see the concert I suggested she just give us back the difference between a reserved seat & a general admission ticket & we would take a seat behind the reserved section. All I got was an ugly stare. The first violinist saw what was happening & told the woman to put 3 chairs in the front row for us. The music was faultless & so beautifully played but it was ruined by the nastiness of the person taking tickets. I think they oversold reserved seats & thought they could take advantage of a non-German speaking tourist. Save your money. Go elsewhere.

Dear Yorkpo and reader! The Salzburg Concert Society is the new owner of the Schloss Konzerte Mirabell. We also organize the famous Mozart Dinner Concert Salzburg. It is number one on Tripadvisor and Salzburg. Although there is no excuse you were treated, your review refers to the old management. Dear Yorkpo, if you visit Salzburg again, get in contact with us. We will arrange an excuse for you!

Incredible - I'd give it 20 stars if I could. The ballroom is simply stunning and being able to attend a performance of Mozart music in a palace...are you kidding! We chose this venue to see a performance because of the location (in the heart of Historic Salzburg), venue (beautiful ballroom in the Palace) and musical pieces being played. The musicians were amazing and the final section was a selection from Mozarts most well known and loved work. If you don't do anything else in Salzburg, do this.
A tricky part is getting the tickets. The best thing is to get them ahead of time and pay the extra 6 euros for reserved seats. There are a few ways to purchase them but we got ours on the day from a ticket seller located very close to Mozarts birthplace.
We chose to go here instead of the fortress to avoid having to deal with the funicular and because the venue is significantly nicer. Also it's slightly less expensive but I would have paid more.

We went to half a dozen concerts in Vienna and Salzburg during our trip at this was the best.

The palace is now effectively the operating city hall of Salzburg. It's about a 10-minute walk from the oldest part of town (Mozart's house and all that). The setting is the 1606 Marble Hall in which Mozart played, and it's beautiful. The concert hall holds about 150 people, and there is no truly bad seat. You can reserve seats in the first few rows (from which you are just a meter or so away from the action, or you can opt for the less expensive general admission ticket, whose seating is first-come-first-serve.

The performance was about 2 hours, including a 15 minute intermission.

Attire was smart/casual. I wore a sport coat and trousers and felt perfectly attired; others had trousers and a sweater.

My understanding is that the performers change. The performance we saw was given by the 1756 Orchestra, which focusses on authentic sounds by using instruments from the day.

The musicians were very talented (world-class) and clearly enjoyed their craft.

I was with my wife, we paid extra for Category I but they gave us two seats in the fifth row on the far side (places 1 and 2) when the directions said:
Category I: numbered seats, central seats.
Category II: seats not numbered behind and on the sides of category I
The ticket attendant gave no explanation and was rude.
Result, we could hardly see the head of a single violinist, also because in front of us we had four other rows with very tall people sitting, and since we were in a side seat we could not see anything considering the diagonal.
Very frustrating for those who are used to listening to classical music and go to a concert for the pleasure of seeing the musicians play, otherwise listen to a good system at home.
Very frustrating experience,never again will I repeat such an experience.

Dear Placido. Thanks for your review. I'm sorry that you had a disapointing experience. The seats of the first category are 10 rows with the numbers 1 to 10. So you got best places and nothing on the side. Please, tell the truth! To go to a concert and complaining that there are other people makes no sense. None of our staff is rude! We are always helpful and take us time for our guests that they can enjoy one of the most high recommended concert series. All the best Jochen Grüner

We went to the concert at Schloss Mirabell on the 23rd of December and it was the best!

We are not huge classical music fans, but you really need not be to enjoy this lively ensemble. The musicians are truly amazing!

We booked our tickets well in advance (and got a discount, because we indicated that we will be purchasing a Salzburg Card once in the city) (IMPORTANT: To book the discounted price you have to book via email. On their website you will only find the regular prices), but there are shows almost every day, so unless you have your heart set on a specific date, you may well be fine booking tickets once you are in Salzburg.

The venue is intimate, seating approx. 60 people (own estimation), but getting tickets in the assigned rows are worth a couple of extra euros. The show itself was about 2 hours long (including the intermission). Lovers of classical music will get their fill and those only dabbling in it, will not be bored. Truly a must-see!

The concern was brilliant, all the musicians were at the top of their game and had real energy, just made it so enjoyable. The venue for this concerts was fantastic, it could not get any better as it gave you a real feel of what it would have been like back in the 18th century. We paid extra to be in the first 10 rows and were delighted to be actually sat on the front row! I would definitely recommend the extra 10euro and get there a little earlier, we turned up at 7:20pm for an 8pm start.

What a brilliant evening and in such superb surroundings, just made it even better.

I could not have imagined a more spectacular way to end our four days in Salzburg than a classical concert at SchlossKonzerteMirabell. The marble staircases lead you up to a grand ballroom fit for a king and queen.

We had the privilege of listening to selections from Vavaldi. I am still playing it in my head. We had front row seats and it was worth every cent we paid. . .magnificent.
