The Max Steiner Orchestra - short MSO - was created to bring a world class, high quality and competitively priced film, television and video game orchestra to the birthplace of classical music, Vienna, Austria. 


Ms. García chose the name “Max Steiner Orchestra” in honor of the late Max Steiner, an Austrian born Academy Award winning musical legend, who revolutionized the motion picture industry with his contributions to film scores, soundtracks and technology.

As part of the “International Film Music Symposium Vienna 2013” the MSO performed a recording showcase with Hollywood’s famous composer and conductor David Newman. In the same year the orchestra recorded the soundtrack for the ZDF television production “Der Wagner Clan. Eine Familiengeschichte”, which was released on CD by Sony Music. Additionally advertisements were produced for Red Bull. 

The Max Steiner Orchestra fosters a close relationship and cooperation with the “Universität for Musik und Darstellende Kunst Wien”, Vienna's world famous University of Music and Performing Arts. In the course of the “Film Composers Lounge 2014” compositions of students were played live at Porgy & Bess.

The MSO has already collaborated with many renowned personalities such as musical superstar Andrew Lloyd Webber, opera singers Anna Netrebko, Thomas Hampson, Luca Pisaroni, Erwin Schrott, Katarina Tretyakova and Charles Castronovo, violinists Aleksey Igudesman and Latin-American Singer and composer José Feliciano.

Furthermore, the Max Steiner Orchestra has performed for MTV Unplugged (Andreas Gabalier), Disney in Concert (Frozen), Best of John Williams, Disney’s Fantasia, Hampson & Pisaroni, Universal Music UK (Bruton Music), EMI Music UK and the TV-Production of Shanghai Huahua Zaozao Film & Television Culture Media with leading actors Wallance Chang and Wang Xiaochen at the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna.

Working with different ensembles, from chamber all the way up to symphonic orchestra lineups, the MSO tries to attract a wide ranging audience, not only through a classical & romantic repertoire, but also with high-quality productions including opera, show, film and videogame music. Passionate about music, the Max Steiner Orchestra continues to set a foundation for the future of the industry, and supports all future musicians, composers and engineers.
