Reviews of the Wiener Concert-Verein 

Listen to and read the opinions of our guests, visitors and the media on the Wiener Concert-Verein.

"A past which remains alive, a present which reaches into the future. A moment of reflection and hope runs through this heterogenous yet coherent program, not the least because it shows the exceptional teamwork of these artists as they safeguard an identity through the predilection for different languages. The clear bright phrasing of this orchestra, accustomed to broad abundance, made Mozart’s Divertimento KV138 sound like a balsam of trust in humanity in the golden warmth of the Brahms Saal."

- Ape musicale (Dr Roberta Pendrotti), 3rd March 2022

"Wiener Concert-Verein at Meisterkonzerte Innsbruck: passion and sighs of love. The Wiener Concert-Verein played with the transparency of chamber music, bringing a combination of spoken phrases and sensitive sound painting to the fore. Expansive and deeply felt slow movements, the play of dialogue in clear-cut balance, dance-like elasticity in the fast movements – in short, a real experience!"

- Tiroler Tageszeitung, Markus Hauser

"Der Wiener Concert Verein unter Walter Kobera bringt die hervorragende Musik Richard Dünsers zum Leuchten. Langer Beifall und viele Bravos!"

- Neue Vorarlberger Tageszeitung

"Die Abonnenten im Konzerthaus erlebten ein glanzvolles Konzert mit einem der führenden Mozart-Orchester, dem Wiener Concert Verein."

- Westfälische Rundschau

"The Wiener Concert-Verein's appearance here was the high point of the Estonian musical season. To call the orchestra outstanding would be an understatement. Every item on the program was performed with consummate charm and stylistic assurance.
The endless applause was doubtless a reoccurrence of what this chamber orchestra drawn from the Vienna Symphony encounters worldwide."

- by Igor Garschnek, Eesti Päevaleht

"Ivan Eröd's appealing second symphony is sure to make its mark on the musical scene… at least whenever it is in the hands of dedicated ensembles such as the Concert-Verein. This premier performance was exceptionally effective!"

- Kronen Zeitung

"Sie sind ein Ableger der Wiener Symphoniker, eine Gruppe junger Musiker, die als engagiertes Kammerorchester ihr Publikum zu erobern wissen. Ein echtes Schmankerl ... Ha."

- Kurier

"An evening for connoisseurs"

- Die Presse

"Rundum überzeugend ist die orchestrale Umsetzung. Der Wiener Concert Verein unter Ulf Schirmer reichert die Partitur mit viel Energie und pathos an und treibt die Musik so spürbar vorwärts. Zumindest aus dem instrumentalen Engagement hätte man Strom gewinnen können."

- Der Standard über die Uraufführung der Oper „Strom“ von Johanna Doderer

"More than 35 years after its foundation, the famous Chamber Orchestra of the City of Vienna, the Wiener Concert-Verein, visits our country to meet the Bulgarian audience for the first time. Together with Maestro Hossen, the multiple prize winners of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation have succeeded in recreating the unique sound of Viennese classical music at the highest musical level and turning the festive concert into a feast for the soul."
