The city of Vienna’s renowned orchestra proudly presents the first production of its own newly founded label "Wiener Symphoniker". This new label is planning to focus on respectable and programmatically well thought-out high-quality recording projects in response to a recording industry which is otherwise more and more focussed on individual stars and starlets.

The first release is a paradigmatic example of the "Wiener Symphoniker's" core repertoire. Gustav Mahler's "1st Symphony in D-Major" was written only four years before the "Wiener Symphoniker" were founded in 1900. So, not surprisingly, Gustav Mahler's symphonies and their interpretational challenges were among the main interests of the orchestra and its many renowned conductors from the very beginning. Above that Mahler's Symphony "Number 1", being the first oeuvre of a Vienna revolutionary, is more than suitable for the start of a new Vienna orchestra label.

In the future the label "Wiener Symphoniker" will annually publish between two and four productions. On the one hand these will be new, mainly live recordings. On the other hand there will be archived recordings from the rich history of the orchestra. The next publications in preparation will be Gustav Mahler's "Symphony Number 6" (Fabio Luisi) and the "1st Symphony" by Johannes Brahms (Sergiu Celibidache).
