Munich Residenz Concert

1. Munich Residenz Concert

The Residenz in the heart of Munich was the city palace, once the seat of the Dukes, Princes, and Kings of Bavaria. The extensive complex is the largest city palace in Germany and contains some of the most lavish interiors in Europe. With its art collections and treasury, it is without a doubt the most important cultural site in all of Bavaria. A particular highlight awaits you every Saturday and Thursday in the Munich Residenz. The Residenz Soloists, together with members of the Munich Philharmonic, give a concert in the Hofkapelle where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself once played. The concert program is changed weekly and offers masterpieces of the Baroque and Classical periods by Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Haydn, and works produced by Mozart as a guest composer at the Bavarian court.

A must do in Munich. You are only getting a ticket, so don’t expect to have someone tshow you where to go. And the “meeting spot” was actually not that obvious as there were 2 Lions Gate. It’s a small office in the middle of the complex. Get there early for the best seats. I arrived a little before 6 pm and there were already patrons seated.

Concert was moved to another location in the palace complex due to heating issues in the chapel. The new location was another chapel within the complex. We should have been notified of this change in locationl.

The chapel is very beautiful in baroque style and has superb acoustics. This meant the 3 piece ensemble of harpsichord, oboe and clarinet were able to be heard very clearly.

Well worth attending. The musicians were talented and the music delightful. The venue is a bit challenging to find. Allow plenty of time.

The concert is wonderful, but leave plenty of time to find the meeting spot (not obvious) and get good seats.
