History of the Orchestra

The Salonorchestra Alt Wien was founded in 1999 by Josip Susnjara and Professor Udo Zwölfer, the long-time principal leader of the Vienna Volksoper Orchestra. It is a special characteristic of the Salonorchestra’s musicians that they are able to produce a rich symphonic sound without a conductor. It is the concert master who directs the orchestra from the position of first violin, as ...did Johann Strauss and Josef Lanner. The way in which each player listens to the others, produce a joyous energy which communicates itself directly to the audience in the concert hall.


Strauss & Mozart concert in Kursalon Vienna - What to expect:

The concert:
The Strauss & Mozart concert in Kursalon Vienna lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes, including a break of 15 minutes. The Salonorchester Alt Wien performs a mixture of the most beautiful works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the energizing waltzes and polkas by Johann Strauss.

The venue:
The Kursalon Vienna was built 1867 and was originally designed as a ...recreation resort, since it was right next to the Stadtpark, the city park. With the first concerts by Johann Strauss (son) at the Kursalon, it quickly became a hotspot in the center of Vienna. The Lanner Hall, where most of the concerts take place, is named after Strauss’ friend (and musical rival) Joseph Lanner.

Like most of the historical concert locations in Vienna, the Lanner Hall has no numbered seats. You will be seated by the evening personnel within your category. If you booked your tickets together you will always be seated together. The evening box opens 30 minutes before the concert starts. We advise to be on time.

There is no strict dress code.
