Concentus Musicus Wien is a baroque music ensemble founded by Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Alice Harnoncourt in 1953. It generated the now well-established movement in performance and recordings to play early music historically informed on period instruments. The original instrumentalists in the group came from the ranks of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. They gave their first public concert in 1957 in Vienna.
