12:35 am
vienna over the centuries the 2 of them also moved here when he was 22. why was he here in vienna why were so many musicians and composers attracted to vienna. or beethoven composers like haydn and mozart were role models. because after realizing just how great they were purposely chose to come to vienna . of course much more than just the metropolis for music so it's time for a brief overview of austria's capital. some $1900000.00 people live in vienna and each year the city welcomes around $7500000.00 visitors that makes the austrian capital one of the most popular
12:36 am
destinations in europe. to experience what vienna has to offer just follow that. it's famous ring road that's the recommendation from. as head concierge at the hotel imperial he knows what visitors want to see. just over 5 kilometers long and 60 meters wide. is divided into 9 sections each with its own name. the ring road in circles the city is historical. it also runs past the vienna state opera one of the world's most prestigious opera houses. just because that is probably the most famous building on the. evening you can see the audience coming here not just in cars but also on foot it's nice to watch that even if you're not going to the opera it's
12:37 am
a kind of theater in itself. for the. many buildings here speak of the past the. book palace today it's the official residence of the austrian president. the art history museum is another important monument. built with austria was part of an empire it contains treasures from 7 different millennia. ascending the staircase in the art history museum is a great experience every time the magnificence to the left and right of the stairs over here but the real treasure is up above when you turn around. and taken these wonderful paintings by gustav clement i mean they're unique works of art and think i think it comes back to the original ring red was built with medieval military force if a case of this one stand by us in a scene 57. audited to be given a complete make of that the boulevard became the biggest construction project of
12:38 am
the early knowing that the thing has changed a lot over the centuries aristocrats and the middle classes used to stroll about here then it became excess appeal to everyone so now there's lots of traffic but nice bike paths too and it's still a great place to walk through. the vienna city park was the 1st of many public parks to be built along the thing more than 150 years ago. but the city park is my favorite part of the thing. you can observe all kinds of people here. in the theater when you can see everyone from top managers to punks to japanese tourists. everyone comes here. some say the thing has made what it is today.
12:39 am
following loopy from beethoven's footsteps in vienna as i've already mentioned the 2 of them was a rather restless guy he often moved in vienna and he even moved in and out of the apartment in the merc of us twice several times the house belonged to one of the top and patrons baron past. his landlord remained loyal to him even when beatle moved elsewhere the baron that not rent out the apartment but kept it so that the musician could return. since the 2 of them suffered from gastric complaints as well as for. hearing loss he visited the spot on the filing steps on the outskirts of vienna and hopeful for a cure he often went for a walk in this park. the building in the nearby houses vienna speed of museum.
12:40 am
shows me around the rooms would be to have lived in the summer of 18 or 2. it was quite unsettled he often moved why was that. he wasn't an easy tenant as his deafness progressed he composed louder and louder slamming the piano with his hand but he banged on the walls to be time and saying loudly. and if you got to composing he had a funny habit of taking a pail of water and dumping it over his head. even with today's flooring that would be problematic back then the floor had even more cracks for the water to run down so his neighbors got moldy walls he. didn't word get around among landlords here in
12:41 am
vienna. absolutely he always had problems finding lodgings. that's how he used to live in the compose a fault or. it's an attempt to show what his apartment could have looked like when the harder of hearing he grew the more chaotic his life became. this valuable string instrument from a princely city is lying around. here or scraps of food and sheet music. for instance while working on the mrs sullivan is he couldn't find the kiddie a bible. 4 days later he discovered that his cook had wrapped the butter with the sheet music for the kids. of course that was awful for him he needed those sheets by contrast his teacher and role model haydn was very orderly so his music lies neatly on the piano beethoven was slovenly when it came to how he dressed and how
12:42 am
he kept his house and senate house on. testament became famous in it the composer describes his desperate situation his fears about becoming deaf and his isolation. that islam is highly constat a testament is also a justification he writes about the incurable state of his ears made worse by misguided doctors he came here hoping to be healed. he was also suffering from a broken heart. but in 1802 he came to highly can start to be cured. so this letter is a justification of why he's so withdrawn doesn't socialize much anymore and has become such a loner it's because he's uncomfortable saying speak up i can't hear you as a musician he finds the sun bearable and he must also deal with jealous folks and enemies he's made due to his difficult temperament so this letter attempts to
12:43 am
correct his image a bit. by the way. born here in vienna but in germany that's where he lived 20 years and that's where he took his 1st steps as a musician and composer and of course the people of are also very proud of their. in december 17th 70 look beethoven was born into a musical family in his grandfather was the chord music director his father was a singer and music teacher. to mark the 250th anniversary of his birth a new permanent exhibition has opened in the house where literate from beethoven was born. just a few years before the french revolution the spirit of change was in the air. his
12:44 am
family supported young beethoven's musical talent he lived various instruments and worked as an organist and piano teacher and he took an interest in the ideas of the ad litum and. of the various already apparent are the french revolution men packed on beethoven's life here we have this view of the french marching in and occupying the rhineland. here in liberty polish setup of the market square in bonn so beethoven was caught up in these changing times from the vendor for the last. what the bass have in the house visitors can see the instruments that compose a play. or is portraits testified to the fact that beethoven was already an icon in his lifetime yet the differing portrayals underline the composer's multi-faceted nature. this is a portrait of a young beethoven circa 1900 he was around 30 years old it's
12:45 am
a completely different image than the one we normally have if we think of beethoven as an old deaf misanthrope who withdrew from society. but here he looks at us quite openly and i'm like composers who came before him he doesn't wear a wig at some of his republican hands down signals a new era in this portrayed by horniman is well suited to helping us find a new understanding a new approach to beethoven. in. one room in the bass heavily house is devoted to the composer this everyday life and work. permanent exhibition relies on a few that speak volumes. that it was important for us to show off there is historic house which is mainly in its original condition to its best advantage see a small selection of everyday objects though important ones like the desk he worked at. or his walking stick or i would these images staged in such
12:46 am
a way that you realise how vital they are to beethoven's life. you can really see that in this vitrine which only contains a goose quill and. it helps us realise that all the music that beethoven wrote went through a goose quill and is now preserved for all of eternity. and so for. you can also follow in bass heaven's footsteps by taking a walking tour organized by the citizens for bass have an association. as many buildings from beethoven's day no longer exist they've set up in 5 palace. times. this pillar shows where the cotton once stood it was beethoven's favorite and a center for discussion about the enlightenment. this was before the french
12:47 am
revolution and american independence. here there was a circle of musicians who were very involved in these political discussions and the 2nd was their meeting place. at the front there was. it was run by a widow with who also had a very attractive daughter called bet that back then all the men in bonn were attracted to her like moths to a flame. they go into. there are 16 stops on the base have into it and a round. for stefan i say uttering the composer's memory is a neighbor after the last. of those horrid today there's almost no music that doesn't draw on beethoven that even includes rock music when you listen to someone like the great punk icon patti smith whenever she's and gone she always goes to the beethoven house because she says my music would be inconceivable without beethoven
12:48 am
was so beethoven's really contemporary. back in vienna here the 2 of them celebrated his 1st great successes as a composer for example in the palace where beatle fans 3rd symphony. was her. for the 1st time. the prince of luck of its was an important patron for beatles and for other composers today his palace houses the theatre museum. i think what's so special about this whole. it's simply part of musical history. took place here so did debuts dress rehearsals in the presence of beethoven and
12:49 am
operas. the prince of luck of it's was crazy about music and theater so he knew what kind of people to bring here and just what needed to be done. with us here good luck to sort would become why did b 2 of them perform the avoid here for the 1st time. after 1804 an opera by sally area was performed here and afterwards 2 rehearsals took place for the ever. and the triple concerto the bills prove that. they show that in addition to the musicians for the saudi area opera a 3rd french horn player was needed. and only one beethoven symphony features a 3rd french horn so that's the indication. from the piece that when people. flees went by do you know how the people reacted to the avoid are there any records from the time. there's evidence that the road was considered
12:50 am
a revolutionary work. people must have been pretty astonished because in the symphony was something completely new in terms of its instrumentation power and vitality it was complete noise. stands for music theatre art and cuisine no travel program about this would be complete without it so curtains for wienerschnitzel and the. the feeder restaurant is one of the city's best known addresses for. head chef marcus bobo knows the secret to a good lies in the preparation. of the 1st you can't the mate and then tenderize it carefully. feel is extremely delicate and holds a lot of water because it is so young calf. you have to be extremely careful not to
12:51 am
destroy the fibers because otherwise the water will run out and then the schnitzel can't cook properly both until you. farm fresh eggs and find bread crumbs are also key ingredients for wienerschnitzel. the veal is likely salted coated in flour. next it's dipped in peas an egg covered with bread crumbs. to brush the mixture lightly on to the meat not too hard. they fry the feel in melted clarified but. keep it moving around the pen so the meat will brown evenly. once the deal is golden brown carefully remove it let the fact trade away and serve promptly. that's how they've been making here for over a century the family run business is now in its 4th generation.

12:54 am
viennese don't just visit the central cemetery during the day but i'd like to. bust in what is the classic here what do visitors want to see. this is going to have to do is and where people come from and which v.i.p.'s they know that's not clearly international guests are all familiar with. life. is big and all straight out of the german speaking world but also internationally. the. grave of. is also popular with german speaking visiting his. golf course i want to know where do fish from beatles history it's he died at the age of 56 in 1827. becoming what would be to have his funeral have been like and i let you read it to be pompous some 20000 people have come to his funeral he was much loved at the time
