This chapter examines the two orchestras during the interwar period of politicization. Here, stark differences can be seen in the ties between each philharmonic and its republic. The concert activities of the Berlin Philharmonic increasingly aligned with Germany’s foreign and domestic political interests, which can be understood to be a result of the orchestra’s growing dependence on local and state funds. In contrast, the Vienna Philharmonic remained a private association, and while it received subsidies, it was not obligated to fulfill direct political functions—although the ensemble did support such functions, their activities were always viewed through the lens of the “music city” topos.

Keywords:   Weimar Republic, First Austrian Republic, subsidies, concert programs, modernism, musical politics
