Program Description:

Program OverviewHofburg

The Austrian capital of Vienna proudly touts itself today as "Musikstadt Wien," or "Vienna, City of Music." This claim largely hinges on the presence of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozaart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schoenberg, and dozens of other world-class musicians who called the city home between c. 1780 and 1913. This course examines these musicians - their compositions, writings, and other activities - against the changing artistic, social, and political climate of the "long" nineteenth century. 

Please note that performance opportunities during the study tour in Vienna are being explored.
