Setting the tone around the world

Mozart’s “Requiem”, Haydn’s “Kaiserhymne”, Beethoven’s violin concert, the bequests of Anton Bruckner and Alban Berg – the collection of original manuscripts in the Department of Music is of an international standard. The archive of the former Imperial court orchestra provides a unique insight in the musical life of baroque Vienna. And a comprehensive collection of handwritten and printed music from the 16th to the 21st century documents the diversity of Vienna – a cosmopolitan city when it comes to music.
