Musicstore Laimer inside with piano

Shopping for sheet music

Playing an instrument or singing – Vienna will quickly put you in the mood for this. The music stores offer sheet music for every taste and requirement. From Mozart to Viennese songs and jazz, from teaching pieces, song collections and musical books to scores for large orchestral works.

In downtown Vienna, there are three addresses worth recommending. Near to St. Stephen's Cathedral is the renowned music publisher Doblinger. The family company, run by the fifth generation, is also popular amongst students of music, and specializes in classics of the 19th and 20th centuries, such as Anton Bruckner, Gustav Mahler and Alexander Zemlinsky. Operettas by Franz Lehár are represented, as are famous Viennese songs by Hermann Leopoldi.  

The Doblinger special series Diletto Musicale is dedicated to early music. Another focus lies on the work of Joseph Haydn. The program is supplemented with choral and church music and crossover pieces at the interface between so-called "entertainment music" and "serious music".

A Piano for Trying Out

Near to the Johann Strauss monument in the Stadtpark, on the other side of the Ringstrasse, is the Musikhaus Laimer music store, whose offering encompasses almost every musical genre. Its clientele includes many notable musical institutions and orchestras. The store provides a special service in the form of a piano, which can be used to try playing from the sheet music of the amazingly large stock.

Not far from the Vienna State Opera is the Musik Müller music store. This also offers teaching literature, instrument literature for all musical instruments, as well as piano excerpts ranging from classical and musicals to rock, pop and jazz.

In the immediate vicinity of the University of Music and Performing Arts in the 3rd district is the Musikhaus Kerschbaum music store, which not only sells sheet music, but everything imaginable from cello cases to harps and other instruments. An "emergency service" is even offered outside of normal opening hours.
