Concerts and performances at the Amphithéâtre

In 1862, Johannes Brahms, a native of Hamburg, settled in Vienna. Very soon, he felt at home, to the point where he was able to nourish his innate nostalgia for the North. If the violinist Reményi had initiated him to Hungarian music at an early age, his admiration for Schubert and Johann Strauss would lead him to appreciate Viennese music. These two anthologies of waltzes, sung in quartet (and accompanied by piano for four hands) with their heady yet sensual and melancholic music, are without a doubt the greatest tribute by Brahms to the city which welcomed and celebrated him. A quartet of exceptional soloists has been brought together for the first time at the Amphitheatre in honour of works that are as exhilarating as a summer evening on the banks of the Danube.
