Das Haus der Musik feiert Geburtstag! 

Am Sonntag, 12. Juni 2022

Mit exklusiven Workshops, Kinderführungen und freiem Museumseintritt für alle bis 12 Jahre.


Die B-Box Interaktiver Musik-Workshop

Wer meint klassische Musik sei nicht cool, groovy und mitreißend, der täuscht sich gewaltig. Mit der »Beethoven-Box« gibt es kein Stillsitzen mehr, denn diese Beats gehen unter die Haut. Auf Musik-Boxen, sogenannten Cajons, rockst du gemeinsam mit dem Quartett der Beethoven Philharmonie zu Beethovens Musik und bringst das ganze Museum zum Beben. Lerne dabei klassische Musikinstrumente hautnah kennen, »er-würfel« dir deine ganz persönliche Komposition und lass dich von Beethovens rockiger Seite überraschen. Also rauf auf deine »B-Box« und los geht’s. Im Auftrag von Esther Planton, in Kooperation mit der Beethoven Philharmonie. Termine: 12. Juni 2022 Um 9:30, 11:00, 14:00 und 15:30 Uhr. Dauer: ca. 1 Stunde


Anmeldung erforderlich per Mail an: info@hdm.at | Der Eintritt ist frei.


Erlebe im Haus der Musik eine aufregende Reise in die Welt der Klänge und Musik mit spannenden, witzigen und einzigartigen Stationen. Würfle deinen persönlichen Walzer, erlebe unser Virtual Reality Klanglabor und kreiere dort dein eigenes Klangwesen, oder lasse beim Zookonzert die Frösche zur Musik hüpfen!

LIVE ON STAGE: Smokey Brights

DI., 10. MAI 2022, 20 UHR Bittersüß, schön und auch irgendwie witzig: Das ist der Sound der jungen Talente aus Washington, die mit ihrer Musik schon ordentlich Staub aufgewirbelt haben. Smokey Brights klingen wie eine frische, abgeklärte Version von Metronomy und Tame Impala. Sorglos, aber doch nachdenklich, simpel, aber sehr verspielt, direkt, aber äußerst deep. Gelegenheitstänzer*innen und Goldkehlchen müssen diese Band einfach live sehen. Eine Kooperation mit Bluebird und Der Standard. Aktion nur gültig am So. 8. Mai 2022 an der Kassa im Haus der Musik. Die Museumsfreikarte ist 1 Jahr ab Ausstellungsdatum gültig.


Find out what it sounds like to be part of an orchestra. The walk-in sound exhibition “Inside Beethoven!” combines the latest musicological research with modern sound engineering to create a spectacular experience of being right inside the music – a perspective which is normally a closed book for the public and reserved for the musicians themselves. You are invited to walk between the digital music stands and put yourself in the musicians’ shoes – an unusual, enriching experience for amateurs and professionals alike. This will shed light on the music itself, its polyphonic structure, the part played by each individual instrument, its contribution to the overall sound and its significance in the music as a whole. [caption id="attachment_5066" align="alignnone" width="500"] Photo: Simon Waloschek[/caption] Visitors will hear Ludwig van Beethoven’s Septet in E flat major op. 20, both the version for winds and strings and Beethoven’s own trio arrangement for piano, clarinet and cello. Each individual part and the changes made for the trio arrangement can be followed at digital music stands as the music plays. “Inside Beethoven!” is an innovative joint project which was realized at Detmold University of Music in commemoration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday. The exhibition will be touring Germany and Austria during 2020 and 2021. The installation can be experienced at Haus der Musik until September 2021.

During the week of May 13th, the emerging string quartet Cuarteto Lignum was a guest at Haus der Musik. The Mexican instrumentalists experienced five days packed with exciting encounters, such as a concert at the Mexican Embassy, two master classes with Prof. Josef Hell of the Vienna Philharmonic, as well as sightseeing and museum visits in the city centre, led by HdM information trainer Diego Ondarza. The concert in the HdM courtyard on May 15th was a complete success. The young musicians Javier Alfonso Medina, Cristian Páez, Fernando Dominguez and Roni Gordillo played for a full house. International museum visitors stayed to listen to the sound of the talented young musicians, Viennese classical music enthusiasts came to Haus der Musik on this rainy day in order to brighten up their day. The program was: Borodin Quartet No. 2, Beethoven Quartet No. 4, 4th movement Revueltas, música de feria Ponce Estrellita Piazzolla Oblivion and Libertad. Thunderous applause was guaranteed because the quartet performed brilliantly and two of the members are merely 16 years old. After their stay in Vienna, they went on to Italy, where the European tour ended in Trento on 20th May. ¡Buen viaje, Cuarteto Lignum! To stay informed about the Cuarteto Lignum follow @cuarteto_lignum on Instagram. The quartet is part of the Orquestas Sinfónicas Esperanza Azteca, a project in collaboration with the Casa De La Música De Viena En Puebla.

The new installation "Beethoven's Hearing Loss" can now be experienced in the Beethoven Room at Haus der Musik.

The installation

Ludwig van Beethoven had to struggle with a worsening loss of hearing for half of his life. In the last years of his life, he could no longer perceive his music or the world around him acoustically.

With the new installation "Beethoven's Hearing Loss", visitors experience the stages of a journey of suffering. The exhibit allows us to understand how the great composer's difficult fate is also reflected in his music.

Ludwig van Beethoven's misfortune was to have been born too early. Today, the famous musician would no longer have to resign himself to this fate. Thanks to modern implantable hearing solutions, he would be able to hear for the rest of his life.

Learn more about the outstanding medical technology options for people with profound hearing loss!

The Austrian family-owned company MED-EL is a world leader in the development of innovative solutions for hearing loss. More than 200,000 people around the world can hear again thanks to these systems.

In cooperation with Med-El.

The Exhibition

From October 1, 2021

Pursuing music, whether through producing or consuming, is one way to engage with music. Another is the historical examination of music and its creators and interpreters. Philosophy of Music, on the other hand, is a completely different matter: It is concerned with the intellectual permeation of what music is and how it is capable of generating the effect we experience when we are moved, aroused, befuddled, seduced, repulsed or even disgusted and repelled by music. Philosophising is, according to a common expression, the permanent mental remodeling of the being. Music is part of the being. In this respect, it is hardly surprising that this permanent remodel has resulted in numerous and diverse structures that more or less accurately or more or less consistently capture what music and its inherent power are. This exhibition is intended to give the visitor an impression of how multicoloured and admirable, but also astonishing and sometimes disturbing, these mental structures are.


About the curator

Heinz Palasser (born 1967 and living in Vienna) approached the field of philosophy via the detours of life. He has always had the urge to liberate the supposedly self-evident from precisely this self-evidentness. Since 2012, he has been managing the School of Philosophy alongside the philosopher Bernd Waß. He has loved music as a constructive medium for all his life. So it seemed obvious to him to turn towards the Philosophy of Music. He is glad about opportunities like this one, to showcase philosophical content in front of a larger audience.
