Concert & Wine

Enjoy a Concert with Viennese music and wine accompaniment in the Orangery at Schönbrunn Palace.

The traditional and romantic Viennese music and the “Wiener Lieder” from 1850 to 1950 are part of the culture and history of Vienna. Composers such as Robert Stolz, Heinrich Stecker, Hermann Leopoldi, Franz Lehar and Johann Strauss still enchant with their lively melodies.

And every good Viennese music also includes a glass of wine. Local wines and lemonades are served, while a charming host leads the evening in the Schönbrunn Orangery. The Schönbrunn Orangery is famous for its famous music competition between Salieri and Mozart in 1786, which took place in its halls.

The many freelance artists are excited to be able to offer you a musical bouquet.

Viennese Music and the “Wienerlied”

The Wienerlied (lit. Viennese Song) is a unique musical and socio-cultural phenomenon. Some call it a psychograph of the Viennese way of life. A mix between idealism, joie de vivre and desperation.

The Wienerlied was created around 1850 during the urbanization of the city of Vienna. People felt they had lost the original and traditional Vienna and felt a longing for the ty...pical Viennese and the characteristics of the city.

The Viennese music of this time had its sources in the street song and folk singers, as well as the theater coupe and the operetta.

The Wiener Lied usually describes something characteristic of Vienna and is often crowned by a rather black humor.

The Viennese song had its heyday around the turn of the century and popular performers appeared in bars and singing halls. Even opera singers and actors such as Alexander Girardi and Hermann Leopoldi devoted themselves to the Wienerlied.

From 1950, popular performers such as Paul Hörbiger, Hans Moser and later also Peter Alexander made Viennese songs widely known and popular.

Over time, the style of the cabaret song developed from the Wienerlied. Well-known interpreters were Helmut Qualtinger, Georg Kreisler and Gerhard Bronner.

In modern times, the Wienerlied has developed in different directions. Artists like Andre Heller and Karl Hodina mixed traditional music with modern styles like jazz and blues.

Viennese music and the Wiener Lied still have an impact and relevance today. The so-called new Viennese songs are represented, among others, by the writer Ernst Molden, the button harmonica player Walther Soyka or the chamber actor Franz Wyzner.
