The "Viennese Classicism", the age of Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, is regarded as one of the great achievements of European culture in music.

The Age of Biedermeier found its counterpart to these three composers of the Classical period in the person of the Viennese composer Franz Schubert, whose works of chamber music represented a highlight of the Romantic period. The outgoing 19th century was characterised by the works of Anton Bruckner, Hugo Wolf and Johannes Brahms, the epitome of Classical-Romantic music.

Gustav Mahler can be regarded as one of the great symphonic composers at the onset of Modernism. The Vienna Operetta had its kings in Johann Strauß and Franz Lehár, the music of the brothers Schrammel is inseperable from the "Heurigen" (i.e. a typical Viennese wine tavern). The "Second Viennese School" with Arnold Schönberg, Alban Berg and Anton Webern influenced music from the era of Modernism to the fusion music of Josef (Joe) Zawinul and Franz Koglmanns "Third Stream".
