The Wiener Musikverein



The Wiener Musikverein, commonly shortened to Musikverein, is a concert hall in the Innere Stadt borough of Vienna, Austria. It is the home to the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra.

 

The "Great Hall" (Großer Saal) due to its highly regarded acoustics is considered one of the finest concert halls in the world, along with Berlin's Konzerthaus, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Boston's Symphony Hall. None of these halls were built in the modern era with the application of acoustics science and all share a long, tall, and narrow shoebox shape.

 

The building of Concert Halls was designed by the Ringstrasse architect Thophil van Hansen for the Society of Music Lover - Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde which was founded in 1812. The "Golden Hall" is famous with its excellent acoustics. Countless premiers by Vienna Philarmonic Orchestra and world wide known masters has taken place in the Golden Hall of Musikvereingebäude. Annually the New Year's Concert is broadcasted from the Golden Hall to all around the world by satellite transmission. The Skandalkonzert of 1913 was given there, and it is the venue for the annual Vienna New Year's Concert. Its lively acoustics are primarily based on Hansen's intuition as he could not rely on any studies on architectural acoustics.

Rossatz-Arnsdorf





Rossatz-Arnsdorf liegt am rechten Donauufer der Wachau in Niederösterreich. Die Fläche der Marktgemeinde umfasst 39,04 Quadratkilometer. 78,6 Prozent der Fläche sind bewaldet.

Von einer Besiedelung schon in der Steinzeit (bis etwa 2500 v. Chr.) zeugen Bodenfunde wie Hockergräber, Steinbeile und Keramik. Auch aus der jüngeren Eisenzeit (4. Jahrhundert v. Chr.) wurde ein Keltengrab gefunden.

Während der Römerzeit gehörte das Gebiet zur Provinz Noricum. Entlang der Donau verlief die Grenze des Reichs. 

Im 7. und 8. Jahrhundert bestand eine slawische Siedlung am Steilabfall zur Donau. Neben Bodenfunden erinnern daran heute noch Orts- und Flurnamen mit slawischen Wurzeln.

Seit etwa 1170 gibt es urkundliche Zeugnisse für den Weinbau in dem Gebiet. Nach Ankauf der ehemals herrschaftlichen Grundstücke nach Aufhebung der Erbuntertänigkeit im Jahr 1848 gründeten die Rossatzer 1859 die Wald- und Gutsgenossenschaft (jetzt Agrargemeinschaft).

1626 und 1886 wurde Rossatz durch Brände verwüstet.

1971/72 wurden die Gemeinden Mitter- und Oberarnsdorf eingemeindet.
