The Wiener Konzerthaus was built in 1913 close to Ring
Boulevard and Stadtpark.
Until the end of World War I it mainly focused on classical
music. After that, the program has widened to include other
performances, like modern dance. While the building suffered
little during World War II, the artistic reputation of the
Konzerthaus did. Immediately after the end of the war, the
Konzerthaus aimed to regain its status and dedicated itself
to the promotion of contemporary classical music in Austria.
Together with Musikverein and
State Opera it is one of Vienna's
first addresses regarding music.
Festivals like 'Wien Modern', 'Hörgänge' and 'Resonanzen'
have gained international reputation and offered many opportunities
for young and lesser known artists.
