Musicians of the Wiener Philharmoniker gathered outdoors in Salzburg

Wiener Philharmoniker


There is perhaps no other musical ensemble more closely associated with the history and tradition of European classical music than the Vienna Philharmonic. In the course of more than 180 years, this orchestra has experienced and influenced the course of musical history around the world.

The Vienna Philharmonic performs approximately 40 concerts in Vienna annually, among them the New Year's Concert and the Summer Night Concert Schönbrunn, which are broadcast in numerous countries around the world. The orchestra also has an annual summer residency at the Salzburg Festival and performs more than 50 concerts a year on its international tours.

Askonas Holt has collaborated with the Vienna Philharmonic for many years now and organised concert in the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia, including many appearances at the BBC Proms, with such an elevated roster of conductors as Sir Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink, Daniel Barenboim, Zubin Mehta, Franz Welser-Möst, Lorin Maazel, Christoph Eschenbach and in 2004 with the conductor/vocalist Bobby McFerrin.
