Vienna and New York: 175 Years of Two Philharmonics

1842 marked the births of both the Vienna and New York Philharmonic symphonies. In honor of their 175th anniversaries, the Vienna Philharmonic and the New York Philharmonic have teamed up to create this multimedia virtual exhibit where visitors may compare similar documents and artifacts from the two orchestras side by side. For example, visitors can read the April 1942 Constitution of the Philharmonic Society of New York alongside the spring 1842 draft of the Vienna Philharmonic's Founding Charter. Other items in this exhibit include photographs, letters, sheet music, concert programs, and more. These items are accompanied by short videos featuring archivists, historians, musicians, and other experts who explain the significance of specific items. This exhibit is divided into six sections: The Founding Documents; Leonard Bernstein; The National Socialists and World War II; Mahler, Bruckner, and Schoenberg; First Subscriptions and Brahms; and The International Philharmonics.
