A two-week exploration of the rich culture of Vienna, this great musical capital commonly referred to as the City of Music. Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven all made their way to Vienna, where they developed and deepened their art. Then along came Franz Schubert, who was actually born in Vienna, and many other composers also found their way to Vienna, including Brahms from up north. And, of course, this is the city of the waltz with Johann Strauss Jr. and Joseph Lanner.
