Guten Morgen! Bitte? Daaanke!

The father of the nation seriousness with which Austrian president Heinz Fischer takes his ceremonial duties has long been fodder for comic duo Stermann and Grissemann, but there can’t be many heads of state as supportive of contemporary music as he is. The president, who is a Klangforum regular, went to Schwaz last month to open the Klangspuren festival, and tonight hosts a Hofburg concert and reception to mark 25 years of Wien Modern. Now imagine Prince Philip doing the same.
