Event details
 

On 19 May 1974 entered in the Cologne studio of the WDR for the first time a hitherto unknown Dutch Universal entertainers who barely spoke German, but could sing like a young god. 42 years later, Herman van Veen embarks on his new, now eleventh tour, which he calls "Falling or jumping." He says: "This motto fits exceptionally well to my age. It was and will always remain the most important decision of my life, if I just let myself fall or only active Jump. If there are problems, I have always chosen me for it, to jump and to find a solution ".
With his 70 years he feels indeed "arrived in the winter of his life", but is still full of energy and regularly plays over 100 concerts a year, with the one word "concert" are also described basically inadequate. And still Herman van Veen is unique in its genre. The creativity of the singer, songwriter, violinist, clowns, comedians, composers, poets and painter is inexhaustible. With soft tones and witty, mysterious and crazy words he entranced his audience for decades in the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and also in South Africa.
In his concerts he always surrounds himself with excellent musicians. After the death of his pianist Erik van der Wurff, with whom he played 52 years and a kind of "shadow" was for him, accompany him to date:

Venue
 
Wiener Konzerthaus
 

The Wiener Konzerthaus is one of the largest and most artistically progressive institutions in international musical life. During the course of a season, which extends from September to June, some 750 wide-ranging events take place and more than 600,000 visitors can listen to around 2,500 different compositions. With this comprehensive and varied selection, the Wiener Konzerthaus – together with the Vienna State Opera House and the Musikverein – is central to Vienna’s reputation as one of the world’s leading music capitals.

From its earliest days, the Wiener Konzerthaus has held the highest cultural aims and artistic mission: «To act as a venue for the cultivation of fine music, as a meeting point for artistic endeavour, as a home for music and a cultural centre for Vienna». It was in this spirit that the Konzerthaus was inaugurated on 19 October 1913 with a festive concert attended by Emperor Francis Joseph I. To mark the occasion, Richard Strauss wrote the «Festliches Präludium op. 61», which was followed by Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. This programme combination, comprising a contemporary work and a masterpiece from the past, served as a model for the Wiener Konzerthaus’s future direction: today, too, an awareness of tradition and the joys of innovation form the main pillars of the Konzerthaus’s artistic identity.

Great Hall

In the heart of the building (which consists of more than 600 rooms) lies the Konzerthaus’s flagship, the Grosser Saal (Great Hall). Designed with a sense of space and classical balance, its stage has provided the setting for many memorable concerts over the years. In this room, artists, audiences and atmosphere blend into a harmonious triad.


Home to world-famous orchestras, virtuoso soloists, renowned conductors and legendary jazz musicians, the Great Hall can accommodate an audience of 1,800 and offers the perfect venue for a wide variety of musical activity. The Great Hall has emerged from the major renovation with renewed splendour and, despite improvements in technical installation and audience comfort has continued to conserve its original elegance. Its unique atmosphere ideally lends itself to the broad range of artistic activities offered by the Vienna Konzerthaus.

 

 

Mozart Hall

Open and relaxing, welcoming and intimate, with its incomparable appeal, the Mozart Hall constitutes a jewel of international musical life. The perfect setting for all types of chamber music, from lute and Lieder recitals to string quartets and chamber orchestras, it can accommodate an audience of around 700 – an ideal size in which to experience the intimacy of chamber music and recital performances.

The Mozart Hall enjoys world-wide acclaim on account of its unique acoustics. This distinction makes it a top favourite with leading ensembles and soloists – as well as a popular venue for recordings. This was taken into account during the major renovation of the building: as with all other rooms in the Konzerthaus, the Mozart Hall is directly linked to a recording studio and a technical control room.



 

Schubert Hall

With its festive character, the Schubert-Saal presents the perfect model of a music salon, the restored use of the windows follwing the renovation having returned the room to its elegant, airy appearance.

Equipped with around 320 seats, it lends itself to a wide range of chamber-music concerts, as well as to receptions, dinners and lectures. It is home to the popular lunchtime concert series, as well as to events which enable promising young musicians to experience a professional concert stage. Many a musical career has been launched in the Schubert Hall of the Vienna Konzerthaus.
