Hi,

I don't have a direct experience of either of them, and have not had a chance to compare the sound of recordings made in them. But, as far as I can see, the Schubertsaal in the Wiener Konzerthaus looks very much inspired to the Esterhazy's music hall. Similar size, similar shape, similar roof.

Are they meant to sound the same?

No, not at all. The Haydn-Saal is larger and a completely different acoustical environment (eg., there's no wall in the back of the stage, just curfews).

BTW: We were already planning our MIR-sessions in Schloss Esterházy a few years ago, but then their leading team changed all of a sudden, and the new directorate disinvited us for no apparent reason. 8-P A very awkward experience.

PS: I suggest to use "Vienna Konzerthaus - Mozartsaal" as a (more than) adequate substitute for Haydn Hall. :-)

Ah, nice, I was underestimating the size of the Haydn-Saal. The Mozartsaal is one of my preferred, so I'm happy to know the sound lives in a similar category.
