The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

There is perhaps no other musical ensemble more consistently and closely associated with the history and tradition of European classical music than the Vienna Philharmonic.

Until the first Philharmonic concert on March 28, 1842, the City of Vienna did not have a professional concert orchestra, despite the presence of composers such as Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Ludwig van Beethoven. Concerts of symphonic works were played by ensembles specially assembled for the occasion. Orchestras composed entirely of professional musicians were found only in the theaters.

In the course of its history, the musicians of this most prominent orchestra of the capital city of music have been an integral part of a musical epoch which due to an abundance of uniquely gifted composers and interpreters must certainly be regarded as unique.

Over the course of about 180 years, this chosen path of democratic self-administration has experienced slight modifications but has never been substantially altered. The foremost ruling body of the organization is the musicians’ general assembly. The elected officials, members of the orchestra, who make all decisions and carry ultimate responsibility.

The desire to provide artistically worthy performances of the symphonic works of Mozart and Beethoven in their own city led to the decision on the part of the court opera musicians to present a "Philharmonic" concert series independent of their work at the opera, and upon their own responsibility and risk. The organizational form chosen for this new enterprise was democracy.

The Message of Music

In concerts in Vienna and around the world, the Vienna Philharmonic is much more than Austria's top cultural export. In their performances, the musicians express the ideals of peace, humanity, and reconciliation, which are so deeply entwined with the message of music. This includes performing concerts in locations of historical significance as well as painful flashpoints in political history. These include such events as the memorial concert at the former concentration camp at Mauthausen in 2000 as well as the concert in Sarajevo in 2014 in commemoration of the outbreak of World War I and the Concert for Peace in Versailles in 2018 in remembrance of the end of the War. In 2012, the Vienna Philharmonic became the first Goodwill Ambassador for the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). The musicians endeavor to implement the motto with which Ludwig von Beethoven prefaced his "Missa Solemnis" - "From the heart, to the heart".
