Chairman Andreas Grossbauer declared at the presentation that, "…with this volume, Mrs. Mayrhofer and Mr. Trümpi have made an important contribution to the ongoing documentation of the darkest chapter of the orchestra's history. I take a great personal interest in this issue and we are grateful for the work which has been done. We deeply regret the manner in which our colleagues at that time were persecuted.
In the future, the Vienna Philharmonic will continue to take steps to further document its past. We place high value on transparency of the historical and scholarly documentation. In order to make this possible, we will be investing the entire proceeds of the highly endowed Birgit Nilsson Prize in our Historical Archives, in order to ensure that what happened during this terrible era will never be forgotten."
