The Gentlemen from Vienna

in Daily Programme, Radio Riel Main

by Gabrielle Riel on Thursday, 9 May, 2013

Today’s program on Radio Riel’s Main stream features the music of the composers that lived and worked in the beautiful and musically inspiring city of Vienna, Austria in the 18th and 19th Centuries.

Vienna was probably the most powerful and influential city in regards to classical music during the 18th and 19th Centuries, as it was the home to some of the most famous composers of those eras. Vienna claimed the Classical composers Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert all as residents during their professional lives. During the Romantic period, Brahms, Mahler and Johann Strauss Jr. lived there.

We hope you enjoy today’s program of this mix of music from these Classical and Romantic composers — The Gentlemen from Vienna — and we leave you with some thoughts from one of the gentleman:

The point is not to take the world’s opinion as a guiding star but to go one’s way in life and working unerringly, neither depressed by failure nor seduced by applause.

~ Gustav Mahler
