Vienna Walzer Concerts - Palffy Palace
Concert & Orchestra
The members of the Vienna Walzer Concerts share a common desire to perform the Viennese waltz in it's most perfect form, the works of the incomparable Johann Strauss as well as the finest pieces from W.A.Mozart.
Well-known singers and ballet dancers round out the orchestraâ€™s renditions, allowing the vitality of life in the Strauss era as well as the gentle melodies of Mozart to re-emerge and also enticing the audience to join them on a nostalgic trip back through the 18th century and to the merry parties of the "fin de siecle" Vienna.
The ballet dancers perform the waltz in inimitable Viennese style, following the violine in a colourful springtime roundel while offering tender declarations of love in three-four time.
Palffy Palace was first mentioned in the 14th century archive files. In the 15th century the Palais was owned by Count Paul Eberhard Palffy von Erdod and remained property of the Palffy family until the end of the 19th century.
In the second half of the 19th century, the palace was renovated along with the historical middle facade. The house was rebuilt after being damaged during World War II, and today is one of the most beautiful palaces in Vienna.
A remarkable date for the culture and history was October 16th, 1762 when Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart gave a concert in the Figaro-Saal, together with his sister Nannerl. in original Figaro Hall from 1762.
