The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester (Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra) is a youth orchestra based in Vienna, Austria, founded in 1986 by conductor Claudio Abbado. History: In 1992, the orchestra became the first pan-European youth orchestra to offer access to young musicians in former communist countries, like Hungary and Czechoslovakia, by holding open auditions in the former Eastern Bloc. Since 1992 a jury authorized by Claudio Abbado makes its selection from the many candidates at auditions held in more than twenty-five European cities each year. At present there are more than 100 musicians in the orchestra and they come from various countries, including Germany, Austria, France, Hungary, Russia, Spain, Great Britain, Romania and Switzerland. The members of the jury are prominent orchestral players who continue to assist the orchestra with its musical program during the rehearsal period. The orchestra has a huge structure.

More than 130 musicians went on their Easter Tour in 2005, enough to play Richard Strauss' Alpensinfonie in its full orchestration. The GMJO tour repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary music with the emphasis on the great symphonic works of the romantic and late romantic periods. Its high artistic level and international success have prompted many leading conductors and soloists to perform with the GMJO. The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester has marked in 2005 their Easter Tour and received a warm welcome. During the tour a recording of Richard Strauss' Alpensinfonie was produced under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst.

The orchestra has also performed in the Lucerne Festival, the Salzburg Festival and the Salzburg Easter Festival. Many former members of the GMJO are now members of leading European orchestras, some of them in principal positions. Many conductors have cooperated with the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, among them Claudio Abbado, Mariss Jansons, Pierre Boulez and Bernard Haitink. On Sep 1st, 2008 the orchestra gave a concert at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall in London with Sir Colin Davis conducting and Nikolaj Znaider (violin) playing Beethoven's Violin Concerto and Sibelius' Symphony No. 2. On Sep 4th, 2009 they appeared there again playing Atmospheres by Ligeti, Mahler's Kindertotenlieder, Schönberg's Five Orchestral Pieces and Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra.
