Musical Concert Introduction to Ligeti and Berg

When young people spend several weeks preparing a concert introduction for adults before a subscription concert in the Musikverein, the anticipation is always great. In this case, it was not merely a verbal introduction, but rather represented the results of creative, artistic and interdisciplinary processes that were presented together with professionals from the Vienna Philharmonic. Violinist Maxim Brilinsky and his colleagures performed selected excerpts from Berg's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, "To the Memory of an Angel", while high school students using spherical 12-tone sounds portrayed in a touching manner the circumstances of the genesis of the composition and its connection to the life of the composer.

Contrabassist and visual artist Bartosz Sikorski designed together with a school class a brilliantly impressive multimedia sound image.

Music and Ballet for Young People

Shortly before a concert tour to Asia, the Vienna Philharmonic performed Igor Stravinsky's "Le Sacre du Printemps" as a young people's concert at the fully packed Wiener Konzerthaus. The friendly and at the same time vivid words of introduction by the conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada contributed to an expectant and attentive concert atmosphere. Two musicians from the orchestra, Christoph Wimmer and Johannes Schneider, moderated with the inflection of the young people and transformed the audience into a large rhythm section. In the second part of the concert, 12 young dancers of the Ballet Academy of the Vienna State Opera surprised the young audience with an impressively choreographed dance routine.

Feedback from a Music Teacher:

"The conductor and the moderators interacted very well with our students in a humorous manner suitable for youngsters. The audience participation activities were great!  There was a grandiose number of musicians on stage and the length of the presentation was just right! All aspects of the concert were very impressive!!! Thank you again and we are already looking forward to being able to experience the next young people's concert!"

Begegnung mit zeitgenössischer Musik

In conjunction with the concert Wysocki 75 + 75 on October 1, 2019, at the Radiokulturhaus Vienna, which was initiated and presented by members of the Vienna Philharmonic, passwort:klassik organized a musical education project for two school classes from Vienna's 23rd district, the district where the Polish composer Zdzisław Wysocki lives. The encounter with the composer and his music represented for the students of the Rudolf Steiner School in Mauer and the Alt-Erlaa High School a completely new musical experience. 

The students' interaction with several of Wysocki's "Etudes", performed by Dieter Flury (flute), Stefan Neubauer (clarinet) and Alfred Melichar (accordion) developed into a "portrait in sound" (produced by Julian Dworak und Lukas Brunner) and a music video (camera and edit Thomas Hötzeneder). For a concluding celebration of "Zdzisław Wysocki in Liesing" on September 30, Wysocki composed two children's songs for the students involved in the project, which were performed together with his new piece "Seltsame Sachen (Strange Things)" for ensemble and narrator for the first time in public.

Encounter with Contemporary Music

In conjunction with the concert Wysocki 75 + 75 at the Radiokulturhaus Vienna, a musical education project was organized for two school classes from Vienna's 23rd district.
