Founded in 1842, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra’s roots date back an additional decade to the 1830s when informal orchestral performances took place in the Austrian capital with no particular scheduling. Since 1842 though, the Vienna Philharmonic has maintained a regular schedule of performances for more than 170 years now.
