MUSICAL JOURNEY - ITALY: A Musical Tour of the Southern Tyrol

The Places
The Southern Tyrol was in earlier times part of the Habsburg Empire, governed from Vienna, and ceded to Italy in 1919. The region remains largely German-speaking and enjoys a considerable degree of autonomy. Of particular interest are the rock-formations of the Dolomites and the many castles and fortified houses of the province. The tour shows two historic buildings, Scholss Velthurns and Schloss Runkelstein.

The Music Music for thebr> tour is by Mozart, born in Salzburg in 1756. With his father, Leopold Mozart, Vice-Kapellmeister in Salzburg, he made three notable visits to Italy, and on various occasions broke his journey at

 Enjoyable October 1, 2014 By Wayne H. (McAlester, OK) See All My Reviews "Mozart's Serenade No. 9, the "Posthorn", has long been my favorite among his serenades, and Karl Boehm's 1971 DG recording with the Berlin Philharmonic is my touchstone for how it should be done. This performance is good, and the video is likewise good, with beautiful early summer scenes in the southern Tyrol and the amazing interior of a historic summer residence. The "Serenata Notturna" is also a solid performance accompanied by an interesting video. Recommended." Report Abuse
