The musicians we saw were excellent. I understand that the program varies, and the musicians vary. Ours were of the highest quality - 2 violins & 1 bass. One of the violinists was a virtuoso & performed several of his pieces without reading music. The setting, in a small chapel in The Residenz Palace, was exquisite. Mozart had performed there, not surprisingly. You do sit on hard wooden pews, so that is the only drawback. They ask you to arrive at 6, and the concert is at 6:30, so you have a bit to wait after being seated. The entrance can be hard to find - it is one of the doors to the Residenz which has Lions at the doorway, which helps to identify it. They also give the street & surrounding shops for reference points. Many attendees dressed nicely. We only saw the show as we did not need to have the dinner, which we understand is at a nearby restaurant.
I almost cried when the music started. With Covid-19, I have not listened to live music for months. The flautist was wonderful, and I think the harpsichord player was terrific as well. Thank you for this experience.
Nice music in a nice venue. It was only 1 hour so a bit shorter than I expected. The atmosphere was a bit informal. Some audience were talking and taking photos during the performance.
The concert was highly enjoyable with talented performers. The only problem was finding the venue. Even with a Munich resident to lead us, it was difficult to find.
It was so nice to perform at Chapel, where you can't enter the Resident's tour. Kindly explain between the performances , but I couldn't understand the German ;)
