Austria 2: Vienna - A Classical Look

Austria  2: Vienna - A Classical Look

Beautiful music always surrounds you in Vienna; the notes can come floating through the air from inside a cafe or can linger about inside your head after the opera. But no matter where it comes from, the music of Vienna was certainly inspired by the city's grand architecture and superb culture. This program offers a classical view of Vienna, a vibrant modern city with a rich aristocratic past. Here we learn of Johann Strauss, Jr., known as the "King of the Waltz" for such works as the Blue Danube. Ludwig van Beethoven, though born in Germany, studied with Franz Joseph Haydn and gained his great fame composing here. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart moved to Vienna in 1781 and composed some of his most famous operas here. We visit the Vienna Opera House, which has a worldwide reputation for its first-class opera performances. We travel on the Ring Boulevard, or Ringstrasse, which circles the center of the city; and visit the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace, whose surrounding buildings and huge park make it one of the most significant cultural monuments in Austria. 02/09DE IJSCA 15 min.
