Orchestra, live music performances have a rich tradition in Austria. Prior to the 1830s, it was common to experience public orchestral performances in Vienna by orchestras cobbled together with a mixture of professional and amateur musicians. A group known as the Kunstlerverien was formed in 1833 by Franz Lachner and performed four concerts, including a Beethoven symphony. This group is widely considered the forerunner to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which was formed nine years later in 1842.
