The Gentlemen from Vienna

Grosse Redoutensaal

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
