one of the top addresses for music lovers in vienna it's the sound museum how still music it's all about the sounds and noises and the exhibition starts in the stairwell. because of the fact that there are sound staircase which we call stair play can do more than make music. but i follow you. come on you play a song you hear you can play one of the vienna philharmonic museum is also located here the famous all construct was founded in these rooms. and here in the instrument we look at groups of instruments and for areas of course we show people real instruments and want to visitors to learn something about the groups they belong to. they can beat the big drum to.
11:05 pm
these on its own so you hear something now and then give it a try with only. you can feel the sound waves which produce warmth to this is the world's largest animal high drama by the way. here's a really great interactive installations of the walt dice game was also developed here in house. the concert business and create their own waltz melody by rolling virtual dice that's something you don't see every day. so let's see how well you do play too fast and you grab it like this right and then you roll the die. you'll see or rather hear that the waltz melody is nice ready. we did that just.
11:06 pm
an entire floor of the sound museum is dedicated to the famous composers who worked in vienna. now we're coming to the floor of the grand masters that is the masters of viennese classical music and here we have holograms of the composers yosef haydn full of comedy as mozart beethoven and france to bat. many important composers came to vienna over the centuries the tools and 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 .
11:07 pm
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 destinations in europe. to experience what vienna has to offer just follows. its famous ring road that's the recommendation from. yes 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
11:08 pm
its own name. the ring road in circles the city has historical center. 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 a kind of theater in itself. and many buildings here of the past the have. book palace today it's the official residence of the austrian president. the art history museum is another important monument on the. built with austria was part of an empire it contains treasures from 7 different millennia. ascending the staircase and the art history
11:09 pm
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 gustaf clement i mean they're unique works of art and think i think you can actually directional ring road was built with. a fixation this one stood us in a scene 57. ordered it to be given a complete make the boulevard became the biggest construction project because of the i mean i think that the thing has changed a lot over the centuries aristocrats and the middle classes used to stroll about here then it became excessive bill to everyone. now there's lots of traffic but nice bike paths too and it's still a great place to walk so yeah. the other city park was the 1st of many public parks to be built along the things more than 150 years ago.
11:10 pm
the city park is my favorite part of the thing. you can observe all kinds of people here. see it or when you can see everyone from top managers to punks to japanese tourists. everyone comes here. some say the things that has made the end of what it is today. following lutherie 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 several times the house belonged to one of the talking patrons baron past. his landlord remained loyal to him even when beetle moved
11:11 pm
elsewhere the baron that not rent out the apartment but kept it so that the musician could return. since b. 2 of them suffered from gastric complaints as well as for. hearing loss he visited the spa town of heiling start on the outskirts of vienna in hope of a cure he often went for a walk in this park. the building in the nearby. houses vienna speed 2 of the museum. 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
11:12 pm
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 sang loudly. and if he 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 loans he. didn't word get around among landlords here in vienna. absolutely he always had problems finding lodgings. that's how he used to live be too often the compulsive forder. 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 nowicki is lying around. here or scraps of food and sheet music.
11:13 pm
for instance while working on the mrs so lemonade 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 kid. 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 he kept his house listening to house on the. testament became famous in it the composer describes his desperate situation his fears about becoming deaf and his isolation. that is the means highly constat a testament has 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
11:14 pm
a broken heart. but in 80 no 2 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 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.
11:15 pm
