Title: VIENNA: END OF AN EMPIRE THE WALTZ CITY
Movie ID: VT3483
Movie Number: 3483
Description: Vienna waltzed to the music of the Strausses as the Hapsburg Empire dwindled away in the 19th Century. The most distinguished serious composers living in Vienna during the heyday of the Strausses were two Germans, Johannes Brahms and Richard Wagner, who both claimed Beethoven as a father--the one relating to the Classical, and other the Romantic strain in Beethoven's work. (The resulting controversy has produced some of musicology's most quotable quotes, notably Hanslick's "The only thing which prevents me from declaring the Prelude to Di Meistersinger to be the world's most unpleasant overture is the even more horrible Prelude to Tristan und Isolde.") The program continues through the work of Anton Bruckner, and contains a priceless segment of Brahms speaking and playing a few chords on the piano to inaugrate Mr. Edison's new phonograph machine.

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas."
