Introduction to Prokofiev’s "Classical Symphony"

In the Werkbetrachtung format, classes from various schools investigate the same musical work, its composer and related aspects. They then present their results to each other before attending a dress rehearsal of the work.

In the case of the "Classical Symphony", the classes were able choose themselves how to approach the topic. Using interdisciplinary teaching covering Music, German, History, Art and Theatre, the classes developed a scenic “history lesson” on the composer’s biography: an analysis of the first movement with musical performance by the pupils themselves, stories and a scenic play on the second movement, and abstract paintings on the fourth movement. All danced to the gavotte of the third movement and were then able to listen to the differences between Prokoviev’s gavotte and one composed by J. S. Bach.

Silvia Careddu also played excerpts of Prokofiev's Sonata for Flute and Piano and spoke with the pupils.

This project was something special for my pupils. Our task has again encouraged me to work much more freely with the kids and to focus more on encouraging their creativity. I also found the other schools’ approach to the project very interesting. I’d be pleased to be able to take part again in the future.  - A music teacher

Dvořák's Wind Serenade for Schoolchildren

The goal of the music education format 'passwort:kammermusik' is to provide an experience of music first-hand, to perceive each individual musician and his instrument on the stage, and get very close to the music.

Twelve members of the Vienna Philharmonic played the Wind Serenade, op. 44, by Antonín Dvořák, in the MuTh Concert Hall for 800 schoolchildren in two concerts on February 25, 2019. Those in attendance included an integration class and children from the Federal Institute for the Deaf. Principal Clarinetist Matthias Schorn und the orchestra's music educator, Hanne Muthspiel-Payer, moderated the concerts.

The program was organized around the theme of hearing, seeing and participating. The adaptation of one of the Moravian songs as well as a Slavonic dance provided motivation for collective singing and dancing, whereas screen projections helped keep the attention focused specifically on the music at hand..

The bridge between the professional musicians on stage and the children in the audience was formed by three young bassoon students between the ages of 8 and 14, who performed two musical interludes.

At the end, the Philharmonic musicians recounted in an entertaining manner their own first experiences with their musical instruments. After all, they had also been children once!

Introduction to Works of Debussy and Ravel

The flute playing of the shepherd god Pan was the focal point of a Musical Concert Introduction. Dr. Dieter Flury, the Philharmonc's former principal flutist, presented a musical, informative and creative introduction to the works of Debussy and Ravel. He gave a poignant performance of Debussy's orchestral composition Prélude à l’après midi d’un faune in a stripped down version for flute and piano. Through an animated film and live baroque music, the two school classes demonstrated how the shepherd's idyl of Daphnis and Chloé also fascinated composers in earlier centuries.

Vienna Philharmonic Young People's Concert

The Suite No. 2 from Maurice Ravel's Daphnis and Chloé was the program of a Vienna Philharmonic Young People's Concert for 12-15 year olds. In a teacher's workshop that took place two months before the concert, the instructors received teaching materials with which they prepared the students for their visit to the concert. Therefore, a curious and well-informed young audience filled the Vienna Konzerthaus on the morning of January 8.

Making a surprise appearance were Philharmonic musicians Oliver Madas and Herbert Mayr, who came to the edge of the stage after the first musical example and served as moderators of the concert. They led the young audience in a clear and descriptive manner through the program, while encouraging audience participation and even conducting an interview with the congenial conductor Alain Altinoglu. The composition in its entire 20-minute length was closely followed by all in attendance.
