_RE-THINKING and setting the focus on a contemporary approach towards classical music

_CREATING joint ideas and concepts: shaping and presenting classical music, implementing new formats, developing new synergies.

Andreas Vierziger approaches classical music from a personal angle re-thinking established constructs and shaping them in a contemporary way. His work focusses primarily on artistic content, strategy and on their neglected contact points. In addition to his work and education on the artistic side, he holds a license for business consulting.

His clients, projects and collaborators range from classical music festivals, presenters and record labels to institutions in the fields of education, music, the arts and other genres and disciplines.
