About the Karajan Institute

The Eliette and Herbert von Karajan Institute was founded in 2005 by Eliette von Karajan to promote the artistic legacy of her late husband, Herbert von Karajan. With more than 3.300 live performances and over 2.200 recordings of more than 750 classical works the conductor`s unique legacy covers the most important classical compositions. The incredibly huge catalogue with its complex meta data opens up endless possibilities in a technology driven world. In addition to managing the music catalogue, one of the aims of the institute is to present and support initiatives in the field of music technology. Since 2013 the Karajan Institute regularly presented a series of Classical Music Hackathons together with its notable partners around the globe.
