Lonely Planet review

The philosophy and mission of the Vienna Residence Orchestra – currently led by the esteemed pianist and conductor Paul Moser – is to present Viennese classics in their full glory and purest form. And its speciality? Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss, of course. Concerts are held at the opulent Auersperg palace, where between 15 and 30 musicians showcase their talents while dressed head to toe in rococo and Biedermeier costumes. The orchestra also occasionally plays at other venues in town, including the Börse Palais .
