POINT.1Catch the Vienna Atmosphere!

Time is late 19 th Vienna. It was, between the confused eras, peaceful days. The art was overmature and people was so vibrant. In that time, Brahms, Bruckner and Strauss II had lived in same place, been aware of, and were enhanced each other.
We will make Vienna of that day reborn with their works and the great concert hall, Toyonaka-Performing Arts Center. Some bits will stage the TIME TRAVEL!

POINT.2Have you ever listen to the “Helgoland”??

“Helgoland” is rare performed nevertheless it is a memorial work which is his last work, because of its kind of strange formation. You will take a good experience to enjoy such a minor but grandiose cantata.

Vienna music. That’s the classical music.
Why do not you travel to Vienna!?
