Wiener Singverein

choir

For over 150 years the Vienna Singverein has been proof that amateurs can perform music to the highest standards. The Singverein was founded in 1858 as a sub-branch of the Society of the Friends of Music in Vienna. From the start, the newly formed choir, under the baton of the young Johann Herbeck, achieved such a high standard that it became the chosen interpreter of many important first performances, including Bruckner’s Te Deum, and Mahler’s Eighth Symphony.

With Herbert von Karajan the Singverein entered the media age as a major player. In a unique four decade long partnership, the choir sang around 250 concerts in Europe, Japan and the USA under Karajan, and was his exclusive partner in audio and video recordings of oratorio performances.

With Johannes Prinz – choir master since 1991 – the Singverein entered the 21st century as a highly sought-after, stylistically flexible choir.

Today, the choir regularly performs with the world’s foremost conductors, including Mariss Jansons, Sir Simon Rattle, Franz Welser-Möst and Christian Thielemann. Besides concerts in the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, there are regular invitations to international guest performances.

The Vienna Singverein debuted with the Concertgebouworkest in 2009 when they recorded Dvořák’s Requiem under Mariss Jansons.
