Its principal conductor – as successor to Kurt Masur, Marek Janowski and Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, among others – is Michael Sanderling, who has been its principal conductor since 2011. The Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra is in the tradition of the Ratsmusik.

To this day, the Dresden Philharmonic is a concert orchestra with regular excursions to the concert opera and oratorio. Chamber music and chamber symphony, with the Dresden Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, made up solely of members of the orchestra, also traditionally play a major role.

The Wiener Konzerthaus enjoys a unique reputation as a venue, which is based on three merits: To deal with tradition in a lively way, to open up new audiences through a courageous programme and to be open to new developments. These virtues have accompanied the Konzerthaus since its beginnings. “To be a place for the cultivation of noble music, a meeting point for artistic endeavours, a house for music and a house for Vienna. It was in this spirit that the Konzerthaus was opened on October 19, 1913 with a solemn concert in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph I.
The unique atmosphere of the Vienna Konzerthaus attracts not only artists of the international music scene. It also provides the setting for numerous other social events, balls, conferences, dinners, company presentations and celebrations. The wide range of programmes and offers at the Wiener Konzerthaus clearly points the way to the future. Thanks to the large-scale general refurbishment (1998-2001), the venerable building is also equipped to meet the challenges of the third millennium.
The “upliftment of music in all its branches”: this was the highest goal of the young “Society of Friends of Music in Vienna”. The Friends of Music organised their own concerts, thus taking the decisive step towards establishing a public concert life in Vienna, systematically collecting music-historical documents and founding their own conservatory, the forerunner of today’s University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna.
To “bring the existing classical works to performance”: this was, according to the first statutes of the Society, the declared goal of concert planning. The Musikverein still feels committed to this maxim today and organizes about 800 concerts per year, which are offered in the historical halls such as the famous Great Musikverein Hall, as well as in four new concert halls.
Since 1981, the Gewandhaus zu Leipzig has offered space for great concerts, but also conferences, congresses, festive events and receptions take place here. The Konzerthaus on Augustusplatz and two predecessor buildings elsewhere, also called the Gewandhaus, have been home to the Gewandhaus Orchestra since 1781. Since 2016, Vienna Classic has also been working with one of the most renowned event companies in the world and organises classical concerts in this traditional Leipzig concert house.
