Viennese Institute for Strauss Research

The Vienna Institute for Strauss Research (WISF for short) is a sponsoring association for scientific research projects relating to the Strauss family of Viennese musicians and their contemporaries.

We are concerned with the in-depth, scientific approach that has long been necessary so that this light music is finally taken seriously and not just marketed "somehow". In this sense, we support the HoS with the visual documentation and are pleased that the WISF has found a spatial home in the HoS.
