On Sunday, May 21st 2023, Amstetten’s Symphonic Orchestra performs in the Great Knight’s Hall at Greinburg Castle. The Orchestra is conducted by Thomas Schnabel.

This year’s concert is all about the topic of “Springtime”.

The first part consists of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdys Overture to the Cantata “Die erste Walpurgisnacht” and of the Symphony No. 1 by Robert Schumann (“Frühlingssinfonie”).

After the break the Orchestra performs a mix of popular and beloved compositions – “Frühlingswalzer” by Johann Strauß, “Florentiner-Marsch” by Julius Fucik and the Overture “Die leichte Kavallerie” by Franz von Suppé. The young Upper Austrian Soprano Singer Martha Matscheko sings Arias from Operettas and Musicals by Strauß, Lehar, Zeller and Loewe.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

ZAIDE KV 344 (336b)
German musical play in two acts (1779/80), Fragment

A sultan desires his slave, who is of European origin, but she is in love with another slave, who is also of European origin. An unknown future and thoughts about escape rule over their destiny…
This astonishing piece has been found in Mozart’s legacy. It is a story set in the former popular subject of “Turkish Operas”. Mozart stopped working on this play after 15 brilliant tunes in an avant-gardistic style. The overture, the end and the dialogues are missing. This makes room for new interpretations about great subjects, such as love and freedom, rage and fear.
