"Passion" is a tribute in the form of remarkable photographs of the musicians of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra - the Vienna Philharmonic. It portrays all of the members of the orchestra as the musical heart of the Vienna State Opera and as a leading ensemble in the world of classical music.

Organized according to the 16 instrumental sections, the musicians of the Vienna Philharmonic are photographed as a section in concert dress with instrument, and in addition, individual members from each section are portrayed as he or she wishes. In this manner, the group and individual photographs combine to reveal how the individuality of the musicians contributes to making this orchestra so special.

Each instrumental section is whimsically located in a different area within the Vienna State Opera House, resulting in two narrative threads which resonate through the photographs.

Introductory texts by Dominique Meyer, Director of the Vienna State Opera, Franz Welser-Möst, General Music Director of the Vienna State Opera, Clemens Hellsberg, Chairman  of the Vienna Philharmonic and Michael Bladerer, Players Committee Chairman of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra. In addition, one musician from each section contributes an essay about his instrument.
