New Stamp Issue, 13 March

Viennese Double Bass

Our new addition to our "Music instrument" series features a string instrument that goes back to the Viennese classic period. The Viennese double pass paved the way for solo performances. Thanks to its so-called "Viennese tuning", it became a favourite for chamber music. On the day of issue, the special post office will be cancelling mail items with the special first-day postmark.

When? 13 March 2014 from noon to 6:00 p.m.
Where? Austrian Post, Headquarters, Stamp Gallery located on the 6th floor, Haidingergasse 1, 1030 Vienna
