back to overview

Vienna is considered the world city of music. Especially the music of the Strauss dynasty and the Vienna Waltz in particular, has shaped and enchanted Vienna since the 19th century

In 1971 the best musicians from all large orchestral societies in Vienna closed ranks and formed the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra under the direction of the conductor Gert Hofbauer. Their paramount goal is to cultivate Viennese waltz and operetta music and carry it into the world. Regional and international radio and television productions, international engagements at symphonic concerts, as well as various recordings have spread the orchestra's fame and popularity.

The program includes the most popular waltz and operetta pieces by Johann Strauss, Emmerich Kalman, and Franz Léhar, as well as opera aries and duets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
