About
The „Concerts in Mozart’s House“ take place in the house of Mozarts first apartment in Vienna, now the monastery of the “German Teotonic Order”. Mozart lived and worked here for Archbishop Colloredo in the year 1781. The “Mozart Ensemble” will enchant you with a musical program that includes well-known compositions as well as great works of famous composers like Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Beethoven, Bach etc. By performing in Austria and abroad, the “Mozart Ensemble” has established itself in the Viennese concert culture and has become an “insider tip” for visitors from all over the world.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

I thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic evening of music in this most beautiful setting. The Mozarthaus is a stunning venue for its quaint, aesthetic beauty and the intimacy of its audience to the musicians. It is not an impersonal, proscenium stage, but a congenial fete that does not sacrifice musicanship. The selected compositions were perfect and allowed each musician to shine. Logistically, the ease of obtaining a ticket online was smooth, especially after a last-minute change to my itinerary. I will definitely return when I am back in Vienna.

A very quaint nearly private venue - it seems that 30 guests max. Almost all the music was instantly recognizable and played by orchestra professionals. Being in the Sala Terra made it very atmospheric. The only minor reason why I might not attend again is that it appears to be a show designed for tourists - nobody around me was from the city and were all visitors. Nevertheless, a lovely evening and you have the option to purchase drinks in the courtyard.

The Mozarthaus intimate environment, enthusiastic musicians and outstanding choice of program together created a highlight of my time in Vienna. The sting quartet's precise performance of classical chamber pieces kept couples, families, single guests alike engaged throughout the evening. In fact several of us found ourselves in tears over the beauty of the evening.

When you visit places for holidays and mini breaks certain similar activities appear. The old church, the tall building , the boat trip etc etc. However very few places can copy hearing beautiful music in a very intermittent and historic setting where Mozart actually stayed(for a very short time). Therefore while in Vienna you must take in a concert. If you can get tickets for Concerts at the Mozarthaus book with complete confidence. The only stress you may feel is actually finding the venue and picking up your tickets. When you book on line you do not actually receive the tickets but a voucher. This has to be exchanged for the actual ticket. If you want low stress in the afternoon of the concert follow you phone exactly to 7 Singerstrasse. Look for an opening into a courtyard. You may see the concert poster at the entrance. The actual entrance to the concert is the second door on the right next to the entrance to the church. To get your tickets walk into the courtyard, You will see zero signs and feel lost. Walk diagonally across the courtyard to entrance 3. Walk in and the last door on the left has a sign on it Box office. Open and to your surprise a lady will be sitting there with your tickets! You can now turn up about 10 minutes before the concert. If you do not have time but can only get your tickets on the night the same lady is waiting at the entrance just before the concert with your tickets. it may just be me but I did not want to take the risk.
As for the seats to book. You do not book an actual seat but a row. The total number in a full concert is only about 60 people. I would not stress if you do not get in the front 3 rows. Everybody seemed to really enjoy the concert. PS even on a very cold night the concert room was very cosy and warm.

Perfect way to cap a day of walking and sightseeing. The setting is beautiful. The music was performed professionally and included great choices. It includes an intermission in a lovely interior courtyard where you can purchase champagne. A very relaxing step back in time. And if you go in summer, it is air conditioned.

I can strongly recommend this cozy venue. The place is really lovely and you feel just like you're invited to someone's home. The 4 musicians are really professional yet friendly and feel like your friends from way back. The sound is great in the room where they play.

The music was amazing, the musicians exceptional.
The concert however, did NOT take place in Sala Terrana, as advertised by Tripadvisor. This was not mentioned at any point and was quite frankly, really disappointing. The concert took place in a cold, uninspiring, drab room - not in the beautiful place that is advertised and which I am sure would have made the experience one of a kind.
I am extremely disappointed and would expect someone from Tripadvisor to get in touch with me about this matter.

As an appreciator of Mozart, I was looking forward to seeing his music performed in Vienna. I chose this performance because Rick Steves' guide recommended it... but please, beware! This was objectively the worst swindle of my 10-day Austria and Slovakia trip.

- The space is beyond cramped. I'm a petite woman and somehow was still pushed on either side by those next to me, simply because there wasn't enough space. Most audience members were visibly uncomfortable.

- The cramped space only has one tiny exit. As I heard another patron comment before the performance, "There are bars on the windows... So... what if there's a fire?"

- During my concert, the cello was consistently off. I'm by no means a classical music expert, but it was pretty obvious the cellist just wasn't keeping up.

I wanted very badly to like this performance, but these very basic issues made it impossible. I'd recommend that you dig a little deeper and invest those 43 euros (roughly $58) on a different, more solid performance.

Dear Ms. Eden, I'm very sorry that your experience at our concerts was disappointing. We take the opinions of our customers very seriously and are always trying to leave the best impression possible. Concerning the complaints about the concert: -May I ask when exactly did you attend our concert? Since we have more than one quartet performing for us, I would like to find out which cellist is the one in question. -The bars on the windows are unfortunately necessary because the concert hall is at a ground level and Vienna is not as secure as it used to be. The Fire department in Vienna gave us permission to host up to 73 people in this Hall and I have full confidence in their judgement on this matter. I hope that you enjoyed your stay in Vienna, and we will be happy to have you as a guest on another occasion.

The concert was terrible!!! Honnestly terrible!!! They were playing like amateurs, they didn't respect the audience and 3 out of 4 members of the quartette were laughing with each other all the time!!! In my point of view this shows no respect for the people who paid 40 euros each to listen to them!!! The lady who sold us the tickets told us that the duration of the concert would last from 7.30 to 9 which means 1.5 hour of music. In addition, the musicians arrived at 7.35, they had a break of about 15 minutes and they finished the concert at 8.45 which means that the whole thing lasted less than an hour!!! This is disgraceful and unprofessional!!! We are tourists not fools!!! I would not recommend someone to go to this terrible concert unless he or she wants to throw 40 euros from his or her wallet and 1 hour of personal time. There are so many good and quality events in Vienna so there is no need to go to this shame!

As a chamber music fan, I was hoping for a serious classical performance with a bit of Viennese flair. Sadly, this performance fell short. As noted recently by another reviewer, it wasn’t held in the ornate Sala Terrena, but in a similarly intimate, but rather plain, white paneled room — due to a fire, as was explained by the first violinist. That was our first disappointment.

Second, was the program, which was mainly “light” classical for tourists. We heard was the Mozart Divertimento in F Major, K. 138, Beethoven’s String Quartet in C Minor, op. 18/4, the Lento movement of Dvorak’s “American” string quartet (playing only one movement — a definite no-no), Bach’s Air, and Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, which must be the most over-played piece in Vienna. The Beethoven quartet was the meatiest piece, and it was not played well.

Which leads to the third issue, the quality of the Mozart Ensemble musicians. The first violinist had consistent problems with intonation and also tempo, tending to rush certain passages and leaving the rest of the group struggling to keep up. The other musicians were somewhat better, but the group overall didn’t seem that cohesive or engaged.

Considering the total experience, I thought it was overpriced and would not recommend it for serious classical music lovers.
