For the first time we have received the unique and wonderful opportunity to give a close-up and detailed account on the insides of this institution. For one whole season, we were permitted to be a part of every decision-making process and performance so that you might have the chance to dive into the working world of this world-renowned orchestra.

What does it take and what are the motivations to become a member of the Vienna Philharmonic? What are the emotions one might feel upon looking back at over forty years of music? What is the Philharmonic’s secret to success? Interviews with the musicians, conductors, and people in the background give us answers to these questions and many more. How does a tour organization work? What are the necessary preparations, and how does one make sure that everything has been taken care of?

Experience the full range, from the rehearsals all the way to the international concerts. From Tokyo to New York, and from the Salzburg pageants to the Wiener Staatsoper, you will receive complete accounts from behind the scenes in unseen detail. This documentary provides insider information on the exciting, emotional, and unique world of the Wiener Philharmoniker.
