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.

Focusing on Mozart’s Flute Concerto

Karl Heinz Schütz (Flute) and Tamás Varga (Cello), in conjunction with the music educator Hanne Muthspiel-Payer, prepared school classes for their visit to a rehearsal of Mozart's Flute Concerto in G major. Two objectives were followed with this project: the students were to learn to understand the process of sound production on a flute and to comprehend the musical form of a Rondo.

Each class experimented with making sounds on empty bottles that changed according to the amount of water in the bottles. After that, the "Rondo alla Turca" from the Piano Sonata No. 11 was compared with the Rondo-Allegretto from the 3rd movement of the flute concerto. After some practice together, the theme was played in an arrangement for the class alternating with the soloists. Thus, each student learned what a Rondo is and was able to recognize it when listening to the orchestral rehearsal.
