wean hean (Vienna hearing)

In 1999 the Viennese Folk Music Society (wvlw) was invited to come up with a draft for a new festival of Viennese song. Together with renowned Viennese musicians the wvlw got the project off to a flying start, and since 2000 the festival has taken place annually as “wean hean” – “Vienna sound”. Rather than simply stringing together a collection of widely heard songs or arranging a series of concerts, the festival aims to position Viennese music in novel contexts – to dare to take a fresh look.
