The musical range of the Wiener Konzerthaus covers not only the classical repertoire but also ranges from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque to Jazz and World as well as the progressives sounds of the present day.
From old to quirky
The program at the Wiener Konzerthaus has been varied from the outset: The Konzerthaus was opened in 1913 with a gala concert attended by Emperor Franz Joseph I. The Wiener Concertverein played a contemporary commissioned piece by Richard Strauss followed by Beethoven's 9th Symphony. This combination of modern, classical and international still characterizes the musical offering today.
Popular festivals with dedicated fan communities are held in the Konzerthaus year after year. In January, for example, authentic performance ensembles present the best of Early Music at the Resonanzen. Wien Modern, the festival for contemporary compositions, is hosted with numerous concerts towards the end of the year.
One-hour guided tours of the Wiener Konzerthaus are held in German (English upon request) and offer an exciting glimpse behind the scenes of the contemporary and ultra-modern concert house, which organizes over 800 events each season. The tours also offer insights into the building's architecture and its varied, century-old history, access to backstage areas and, if possible, a brief visit to a rehearsal.
In addition to the Wiener Konzerthaus, there are many other music centers and event venues in Vienna, such as the world-famous Musikverein.
