Wiener Symphoniker

The Wiener Symphoniker (Vienna Symphony Orchestra) is an Austrian orchestra based in Vienna, Austria. Founded in 1900, it is one of the world's oldest orchestras and is regarded as one of the "Big Five" of classical music. The orchestra has a long and distinguished history, having performed with some of the world's greatest composers and musicians, including Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, and Johannes Brahms.

The Wiener Symphoniker's most acclaimed albums include the 1995 recording of Brahms' Symphony No. 4, which won a Grammy Award, and the 1997 release of Mahler's Symphony No. 9, which won an Echo Klassik Award. Other noteworthy releases include their 2001 recording of Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra, their 2003 recording of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, and their 2010 recording of Schubert's Symphony No. 9.

The Wiener Symphoniker has also performed a number of well-known songs, including the famous Strauss waltz, "The Blue Danube," and the famous Mahler symphony, "Titan."

An interesting fact about the Wiener Symphoniker is that it was the first orchestra in the world to be broadcast live on the radio in 1923. This event marked the start of classical music's journey into the world of broadcasting, which has now become an important part of the classical music industry.
