In cooperation with the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra, the Vienna Residence Orchestra organizes special concerts at the Palace of the Vienna Stock Exchange on selected dates. The exclusive, partly scenically presented program includes the best-known orchestral pieces by Johann and Josef Strauss, as well as thrilling opera and operetta arias and duets by Mozart, Lehar, and Kalman. As Johann Strauss intended, our musicians – in keeping with Viennese philharmonic tradition – also have amusing surprises waiting for you.
The special highlights of these concerts are the famous “Feuerfest” polka tremblante by Josef Strauss, and the fast polka “Auf der Jagd” by Johann Strauss (Jr.). Our old hand Anton “Toni” Flor will personally inspire you with his humorous interludes!
A conductor, three opera singers, a ballet duo and a medium-sized ensemble (approx. 16 musicians) present the varied program in the ballroom of the Vienna Stock Exchange Palace. The concert duration is about 90 minutes without an intermission. In addition, special concerts are held in the well-known Vienna Konzerthaus and the Vienna Musikverein.
