Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst - Konzerthaus

In 1913 the building of a large complex, intended to house a new concert hall and the music academy, was finished - just in time before the great war and the fall of the empire.

A first Konservatorium had been established in 1817 by the Gesellschaft der Musikfreundein their first accomodation at the Tuchlauben and in 1869 moved to the Musikverein; Wolf, Mahler, Zemlinsky and Berg studied there. More than once renamed, the present Universität has developed into one of the most important musical institutions: over 3000 students from all over the world study here.>www.mdw.ac.at

The concert hall next door formed in some respects a counterbalance to the Musikverein. Contemporary music was more welcomed, Anton Webern established special symphonic concerts for the working class. In 1921 two orchestras were merged into the present house ensemble, the Wiener Symphoniker. There are four concert halls of different sizes.>https://konzerthaus.at
