Listen to Austria!
What Austrians in the U.S. are listening to in isolation to be closer to home:
Being from Austria, home to the greatest composers in history (Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss, Mahler, Schoenberg etc.), the stakes are high when picking our signature sound. We ski down hills, that are alive with The Sound of Music, and waltz our way through the world. But when Embassy staffers choose their favorite songs for our Best of Austria playlist, it gets eclectic. From pop icons like Falco, who hit the charts on both sides of
the Atlantic, and singer-songwriters in local dialect, to contemporary, “highly addictive electro swing” (© Ambassador Weiss) by Parov Stelar. Click the button below to see how we've chosen!
