Went here last week Feb 17th. Amazing concert, the quartet were fantastic. Highly recommend, the church is amazing both inside and out, although the time of year that we went the church was very cold so wrap up warm.
The concert itself was fantasic however the venue was not!! We were cramed into what I can only discribe as the entrence to the crypt on the most unconfortable chairs!! Very disapointed and I wasn't the only one!! It would have been fab if it had been held in the church or any where else. I though it was very misleading to advertise it was been held in the crypt! The venue is a diservice to the fantasic musicians.
There is very good talent. Would say we enjoyed it and do believe it nears the cost of admission. However, the the concert isn't in the main of the church but in a small space in the basement. So you won't see the grandeur .Seating is awkward in that being flat flooring persons in the back may not even see the preformers . Granted it is a very touristy thing to do there....
We chose Category 2 seating and arrived early enough to grab the best of those seats. The audience was large so had been moved into the church itself instead of the crypt as advertised. This was a magnificent setting that definitely enhanced the performance and the acoustics were excellent.
Amazing concert !!! The standard of performance was veryyyyyyyyyy high. For any lover of music, this is a unique and unforgettable evening. I attended a lot of concerts - but this one is outstanding! This is a definitive must-do in Vienna.
This experience was amazing and perfect. I felt the spirit of Vienna indeed in each note played by these professionals and 1st class players. Thanks to each one - the players and the organizers. I will definitely come back.
