Forthcoming Events 2018/2019

Anniversary of Carl Michael Ziehrer
2 May 2018 marked 175 years since the birth of this Viennese composer - who was the greatest rival to the Strauss family. At an open air concert in Vienna's famous Prater Park, the Vienna City Band held a concert which was held in the open air in front of his memorial.
There is a special exhibition in Ziehrer at the Strauss Family Museum which runs until the end of 2018.

Three sound files have been added under Music and Video in the Members Section:
1 - Of the Viennese composers of the golden era, only Ziehrer and Eduard Strauss are known to have made recordings (and none of those by Eduard Strauss appear to have survived). Listen to a wax cylinder recording made in 1899 in the Festsaal of the Vienna City Hall of Ziehrer conducting Wiener Bürger with his own orchestra.
2 - A 10 minute talk was given on Vienna International Radio by Leigh Bailey on 2 May 1993 to mark Ziehrer's 150th anniversary, which is just as relevant today.
3 - A digest of John Suchet’s remarks on Classic Fm on 2 May.
