LUSH GREENS OF THE 18TH district, JUST MINUTES FROM CITY CENTRE

Starting June 30 and during the first weekend of July 2022, the second edition of the AMADEUS Festival Vienna will be held in Vienna Währing. The open-air stage with around 250 seats finds itself among the luscious greeneries of the prestigious 18th district. Just minutes away from the bustle of the city centre, a new cultural centre will emerge, just outside the city centre of Vienna.

The AMADEUS International School Vienna in Währing, which is operated by Themes Vienna Limited & Co KG, has been one of Vienna's top private schools since its foundation in 2012.

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the spirit, flight power to the imagination, magic to sadness and joy and life to all things"  — Platon

 

Dear esteemed friends of the AMADEUS Festival Vienna,

The second edition of the AMADEUS Festival Vienna will take place from the 30th June-3rd July 2022. The inaugural AMADEUS Festival Vienna in 2021 was a resounding success despite challenges brought on by the pandemic. This gave us so much strength and confidence to bring to you a more intense and exciting programme in our second edition of our festival.

 

What does a Festival mean to us?

An event that brings together not only top artists presenting their best programmes, but more importantly, so much human emotions, encompassing Joy, Sorrow, Peace, Reconcilation, Despair, Hope and the anticipation of a better tomorrow.  The great Beethoven so aptly captured the essence of music and arts in his Heiligenstadt Testament, coincidentally written just a stone throw away from the very ground the AMADEUS Festival Vienna takes place. I am most delighted to present the Programme for Season 2. Mezzo Soprano Angelika Kirchschlager will return to our stage, alongside Dalibor Karvay, Donka Angatscheva and Brendan Goh to present a captivating programme at our Grand Opening Gala Concert.

 

A series of delightful performances for the young and the young-at-heart continues with the Programme titled "Frau Schnaps - Beethoven's Housekeeper". The Young Artists Programme and the rising chamber group stars, the Selini Quartet bring youthful creativity to our stage. The festival believes that such young energy is quintessential of the continued evolution of music and arts. Finally, on the 3rd July, the fiery Janoska Ensemble will wrap up the Festival with their newly created signature Programme “Best of Janoska"

 

"Best of Austria comes home" features Dalibor Karvay premiering the 1665 Jacob Stainer violin of the Goh Family Collection. Jacob Stainer was the preferred violins of Bach and Mozart, even over Stradivari and Guarneri.

A key feature of our second edition of the AMADEUS Festival Vienna is the feature of installation art on the festival grounds. Come not only for great music, but also a chance for visual art appreciation. The future will see a further development into collaborations of established and emerging visual artists to bring about exciting and thought-provoking visual arts master pieces.

 

Do not wait 20 years to witness the evolution of the AMADEUS Festival Vienna! Instead, now be part of our metamorphosis.
