Elternzeit Concert

“History teaches people that history teaches people nothing.” Mahatma Gandhi’s famous saying is the point of departure for an unusual song recital with Marie Seidler and Wolfram Rieger.


In a highly personal and topical program, the mezzo-soprano Marie Seidler - previously heard during several of the Pierre Boulez Saal’s Schubert Week- and her piano partner Wolfram Rieger tell stories of war, death, and loss, but also of hope, through songs of the late 19th and 20th centuries. 

“Parental Leave” concerts are aimed at all new mothers and fathers (as well as uncles, aunts, grandparents...) who would like to experience music together with their babies in a relaxed setting.

The number of seats is limited, and all amenities to make your visit as pleasant as possible are provided in the lobby.

These concerts, featuring Pierre Boulez Saal artists performing excerpts from their programs, are approximately 45 minutes long and intended exclusively for visitors with babies aged 12 months and younger.
