Inventory overview

The inventory of the Wiener Konzerthaus’s archive mirrors the artistic and administrative activity of the Wiener Konzerthausgesellschaft. It is divided up into different divisions, namely artistic management, building superintendant and technical management, and the largest division, the collection itself. The quality of the collection varies from division to division. While the event programmes or the minutes of the meetings of the «Wiener Konzerthausgesellschaft» are more or less complete, there are, as a result of lost documentation in the 1970s, large gaps in the written communication of the management and the building supervisors. Here the documentation can only be said to be complete after 1961.

Following a gap of more than 40 years, the archive of the Wiener Konzerthausgesellschaft was reinstituted in 1995. Since then, a  number of important projects have been underway, with the participation and help of various cooperation partners. One particular example is the events database, which by now entails all concerts and events (around 53,000) in the Wiener Konzerthaus since 1913.
