List of famous Austrian Musicians with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Famous People From Austria
Think Vienna, the music capital of the world, is all about pop, rock, blues & jazz? Not quite so. Before every musical tradition found its stage in Vienna, it used to be the sanctum sanctorum of legendary musicians like Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert, Straus Sr. and Jr., Brahms and other classical musical marvels who gave the city its own musical identity. It was in the lilting land of Austria that the symphonic sounds of Mozart and Beethoven soared new scales. Modern day Vienna is torn between old and new sounds now with contemporary musical forms dominating the new-age music scene. But amid the pop, jazz and rock craze, one can still listen to the dulcet notes of violins, pianos and cellos reverberating in the hearts of every music lover. Such was the greatness of these Austrian musicians. These musical maestros have put Austria on the map over the years and delivered some best melodies the world has ever known. We have captured the timelines, life stories and interesting trivia & facts of some famous Austrian musicians in their biographies who wowed the world with their sheer musical ingenuity.
