The subterranean concert hall of Haus Marteau forms a spectacular backdrop for the final concerts of the master classes of the International Music Centre.
Up to 13-metre-long, interlocking granite peaks on the ceiling and walls fan out the space and impress visitors with an imposing play of light and shadow, in short: they create a fabulous spatial effect.
Architect Peter Haimerl laid out the concert hall almost entirely underground in the southern part of the park so as not to weaken either the park or the villa. Haimerl’s concept for the teaching and concert hall is also oriented towards the area’s past as a mining site.
In the four rows of seats on either side of the 66 m2 stage, the audience is spatially and sonically very close to the musical action. The teaching and concert hall, located at the side below the artists’ villa, is 13×13 metres in size, barrier-free accessible and offers space for up to 100 guests.
The concert hall and the artist´s villa can be visited. Current dates can be found under guided tours.
