Notes and Editorial Reviews
SOUTHERN TYROL – TICINO
Northern Italy has been ruled by various powers over the centuries. The Southern Tyrol, seen here, retains much of its Austrian past, with some regions predominantly German-speaking and others Italian. Scenes are shown of the Dolomites, the strangely shaped rock formations, a typical castle and mountain lakes. There are also views of the neighbouring Swiss-Italian canton of Ticino.
Music for the tour is by Beethoven, with his
Violin Concerto, written and first performed in Vienna, and one of his two
Romances for solo violin and orchestra, independent pieces
perhaps intended as slow movements for another concerto that was never completed.
