Austria: Landmarks

About this playlist

From Mozart to Mahler, and beyond – Austria is something of a Mecca for classical music, having produced so much of the core repertoire it's almost unfair to the rest of Europe. Vienna is particularly notable as a musical hub, producing the First Viennese School (Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven) which defined the classical period, and the Second Viennese School (Schoenberg, Webern, Berg) attempted nothing less than the reinvention of music.
