Montsalvat, in association with the Austrian Embassy Canberra and the Woodend Winter Arts Festival, is proud to host the Concilium musicum Wien as part of their 2019 Australian tour!
The ensemble Concilium musicum Wien was founded in 1982 by Paul and Christoph Angerer with the aim to perform music of the 18th century in the manner in which it was performed in its time. Over the course of its existence the ensemble’s repertoire has expanded in scope and range, reaching from baroque music to dance music of the 19th century. Rare manuscripts from the archives are made to resound again: works by neglected, and in some cases forgotten composers are performed again and not so well-known works by great classical masters are brought back to light.
The Concilium musicum Wien has had successes with concerts throughout most of the world, having performed in large cities and small towns, in fortresses and castles, in cloisters and churches and at international festivals. In the past years the Concilium musicum Wien has performed over 3200 times in over 700 cities: from L’Aquila to Zurich, from Bayeux to Xian. In Vienna the Concilium musicum Wien has performed at over 56 different venues. They have played more than 660 works by 290 different composers, including 140 works by Joseph Haydn, 57 by Johann Michael Haydn and 160 by Wolfgang Amadé Mozart.
