The Vienna Horns chamber music ensemble, founded in 2002, is probably the
only one of its kind in the world. Its members are the lead hornists of Austrian orchestras,
and they all play exclusively the Vienna Horn in F, an instrument that is used only in
Vienna and that is partly responsible for the distinctive Vienna Sound. The ensemble’s
repertoire includes not only original works, virtuoso arrangements of film music,
but also works rooted in unsophisticated Austrian folk culture and temporary
compositions that show off the instrument’s warm, dark sound.
