Meet Andreas Vierziger (Vienna, Austria; 2014 ISPA Fellow)
Monday, June 9, 2014
This January ISPA brought 13 Fellows from 13 countries to the New York Congress. We know it’s impossible to meet all these emerging leaders onsite so we’re highlighting Fellows in 2014 in features via Network and the website.
Meet Andreas Vierziger, consultant to the classical music world based in Vienna, Austria. After beginning his career as an artist manager working with renowned classical soloists, conductors, and chamber ensembles, Andreas ventured out on his own to work on projects where he could contribute his contemporary approach to classical music projects.
With an impressive roster of clients, Andreas has worked with everyone from Vivienne Westwood, consulting on music for Milan Fashion Week to assisting the Welsh National Opera’s collaboration with designer Heaven Tanudiredia. His unique ability to blend fashion and classical music (as well as other art forms) has earned him speaking engagements the world over.
Andreas noted that he found ISPA “A perfect platform” where “one immediately sees a fruitful environment for collaborative ideas.”
Andreas cites collaborating with people from all over the world as one of his favorite aspects of consulting. When asked what he plans to contribute to the field he says:
“…to keep on asking the right questions. I have seldom met a person who is unable to develop a love for classical music and I somehow see it as my mission to share this absolutely outstanding genre with as many people as possible, whether they already had contact with classical music or not. There is a lot that can be done in this field, its development has to become faster as it is and some walls can be torn down. We have to look beyond the immediate and seek out new frontiers.”
