Vienna, I have known of this place since I was little, long before the name of its country, Austria. That's probably because everyone talks about their long history in classical music. Therefore, attending a classical concert was my first priority activity that I thought I should have checked before leaving Vienna. I went to a small concert in a church last Tuesday night. I was there 30 minutes earlier as I'd also love to take pictures of the church before the concert started. Although the venue isn't really that big, all the seats were taken when it was almost time to begin.
To be honest, I thought I knew quite a lot about classical music as I know of every single of the musicians in the program list that they had provided. And then I found out I literally knew their name only and I didn't even remember if I'd heard of their music before or not. (I am sure I did but I just don't remember BECAUSE I have learnt some of them when I was in my high school...)
Here's the list of the music that they played that night. This is for your reference only as they might have a different plays/rundown.

Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART (1756-1791) - KV 546 << Adagio und Duge c-moll >>
Franz SCHUBERT (1797-1828) - Streichquartett in a-moll D 804 - Op. 29 << Rosamunde >> I - Allegro ma non troppo II - Andante III - Minuetto. Allegretto IV - Allegro moderato
Ludwig van BEETHOVEN (1770-1827) - Streichquartett f-moll Op. 95 << Serioso >> I - Allegro con brio II/III - Allegretto ma non troppo/Allegro assai vivace ma serioso IV - Larghetto espressivo - Allegretto agitato - Allegro
It was allowed to take pictures without flash during the performance but I didn't do it just because I'd like to enjoy the moment instead, The ticket price was considerably cheap and it lasted for about an hour which I think it's good, not so short, and not so long. I think I'd be in sleep if it's going to be longer though. haha!
I'd suggest that you should definitely check this out if you're not sure if you like classical music or not as this is relatively cheaper than any elsewhere. I think I'd go to an even bigger concert when I am back in Vienna again! This is so addictive!
