Wolfgang Sobotka, conductor
The Waidhofen an der Ybbs Chamber Orchestra, based in the Austrian town of the same name, a place with a rich orchestral tradition, has existed in its present form since 1973. The orchestra plays an important role in the cultural life of the surrounding area and, through its collaboration with the local music school, offers gifted young artists a door to the world. It has produced several renowned musicians, among them the violinist Rainer Küchl, whose career has included a stint as concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic. With a broad repertoire of musical styles ranging from symphonies and film music to works by contemporary composers, the orchestra has also established itself internationally, thanks to tours of Italy, Germany, Croatia, China, Iran and elsewhere. Despite the hard work of leading the orchestra, conductor Wolfgang Sobotka has since 2017 been the President of the National Council, the lower chamber of the Austrian Parliament.
