Tickets only available in a subscription.

On the evening before the opening concert, Klangforum Wien plays a prelude for the festival Wien Modern: In accordance with the festival theme ‘Stimmung’, the ensemble uses its subscription cycle to examine the aura – and fittingly, the first concert is moved from the Mozart-Saal of the Konzerthause to St Stephen’s Cathedral. Sylvain Cambreling has his hands full with Messiaen’s enormous World War Requiem and its orchestral sound masses. Iveta Apkalna has an equally impressive volume of sounds at her disposal with the new giant organ.

This prelude is meant not just for the festival as a whole, but also for a total of seven projects that involve organs and / or churches this year. The next festival date in St. Stephen’s Cathedral: the custom-made soundscape by Klaus Lang and the Wiener Symphoniker on 9 November 2020 that will fill the gothic church hall and its recently finished giant organ.
