Edition Lammerhuber : 'Passion' - pays homage to the musical heart of the Vienna State Opera

Edition Lammerhuber has published 'Passion' – a book homage to the members of the Vienna State Opera and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. It was the first ever curtain call for all the artists in every instrument group in the orchestra to be photographed together with the Vienna State Opera – in group shots as well as portraits of each individual musician.

The group photo and single shots capture the individuality of the orchestra and its members. The individual images are accompanied with biographies and personal statements by the artists.

The unusual history of the orchestra, their international leading status and uncompromising striving for the highest quality makes the Vienna Philharmonic an archetype collective in classical music and a role model for ambitious hard work.

Their double role as the orchestra for the Vienna State Opera, which employs them, and as the Vienna Philharmonic, where each orchestra member also holds an equal stake in the shares, has predestined them to a unique experiment in artistic ambition.

The book is introduced by essays by Dominique Meyer, Director of the Vienna State Opera, Franz Welser-Möst, General Music Director of the Vienna State Opera, Clemens Hellsberg, CEO Vienna Philharmonic, und Michael Bladerer, CEO of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra.

Additional written contributions were provided by Charlotte Balzereit-Zell, Franz Bartolomey, Friedrich Doležal, George Fritthum, Mark Gaal, Martin Gabriel, Paul Adolf Halwax, Rainer Honeck, Thomas Jöbstl, Daniel Ottensamer, Hans Peter Schuh, Wolfgang Schulz, Michael Strasser, Michael Werba and Klaus Zauner.
