Gerd Hermann Ortler wrote a variation on Johann Strauss's An der schönen blauen Donau for the BePhilharmonic TV Trailer. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is starting 'BePhilharmonic' with the Strauss Music Contest, where children and young people from 6 to 19 years of age are invited to re-interpret classical music pieces - completely free, fresh and up to date.
