Vienna City of Film Music

An Introduction


Vienna sets the tone

Every year the Hollywood in Vienna festival brings together leading lights from the film music industry, raising the international profile of the Austrian capital in the process. The Hollywood in Vienna concert gala also puts Vienna on a global stage: the eyes of hundreds of thousands of music fans around the world will be on the capital as they follow the television broadcast.

The world capital of music is increasingly establishing itself as a hotspot for the international scene, building on its illustrious past as a mecca for film. High-quality services strike the right note with the best in the industry: the Vienna Symphonic Library’s Synchron Stage Vienna in the former Rosenhügel television studios is currently the most innovative studio for recording film music in the world. Vienna Music Angels is the city’s first preparation service for movie score recordings. The MAX STEINER FILM MUSIC ORCHESTRA and VIENNA SYNCHRON STAGE ORCHESTRA have built a strong reputation for high-quality performances and recordings for film and media projects.  

People from all over the planet increasingly associate Vienna with film music.  I hope that this will motivate many of them to come and experience the city and everything it has to offer, from classical to contemporary music, for themselves. On behalf of everyone at the Vienna Tourist Board, I would like to welcome music creators, their fans and anyone else looking to enjoy excellent music to our city – a place with music running through its veins.
