Experience classical music at the highest level

Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra

We are a highly professional, traditional, and internationally acclaimed Viennese chamber orchestra, which has celebrated many great successes since its founding in 1997.

We specialize in the repertoire of Viennese classical music, in particular the works of Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as well as the great music of the Strauss dynasty and their contemporaries. In doing so, we attach great importance to the Viennese style of sound and can interpret the above-mentioned composers not only in a subtly individual way but also traditionally. "Viennese” is in our blood.

Schönbrunn Palace Concerts

Just as Johann Strauss and his brothers Josef and Eduard with Strauss Capelle performed in three places at the same time, we also maintain this tradition, and thanks to our good relations with the Viennese music scene, we are able to perform in the best quality in three locations at the same time.

Our concerts take place in the Schönbrunn Orangery, in the Great Gallery and in the White-and-Gold-Room.

Austria: Schloss Hunyadi

"Bei uns z'Haus mit Mozart & Strauss"
Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra & Joe Hofbauer
The Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra offered a greeting “from castle to castle” at the opening concert in front of the Hunyadi Palace. The orchestra, which acts as the musical ambassador of our country on its world tours, presented a classical-Austrian program from Mozart and Haydn to waltz music.
Under its chief conductor Guido Mancusi, the orchestra, together with solo trumpet player Joe Hofbauer, played probably the most famous concert for his instrument – the trumpet concerto by Joseph Haydn. The evening was marked by the music that the Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra has been bringing to the public from and around the world in an distinctive way for over 20 years.
