We were confused about the location of this concert. We wanted to attend the concert given by the Mozart Ensemble (string quartet) in the Sala Terrena in the Mozart Haus. It was when we went to the Mozart museum and tried to buy tickets that our misunderstanding was explained. There are two separate venues. The Mozart Museum (sometimes called the Figaro Haus) on Domgasse, is where the composer lived for quite some time and recitals are sometimes given there. Mozart actually lived in the so-called Mozart Haus on Singerstrasse for only about six weeks, although he did perform there in the beautifully decorated Sala Terenna.
Having got that out of the way, what about the concert? Well, the Sala Terenna is a magnificent room; walls and ceiling are decorated with frescoes dating from the second half of the eighteenth century. It is a very intimate venue holding around 70 people and the acoustics are superb. The musicians performed brilliantly. The programme consisted of a Mozart Divertimento; a Dvorak quartet; a Haydn quartet; another Mozart quartet; concluding with Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
There was a very special atmosphere to the whole evening; something we will remember for a long time to come.
