Summary This series explores Europe's most spectacular cities and landscapes while revelling in the great classical music composed within them. This program explores the lives the master musicians, the cities they lived in, and how their work reflects the very same surroundings familiar to us today. Presented and narrated by the celebrated British actor and music expert Simon Callow (A Room with a View, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love). Callow begins his journey in Mozart's birthplace of Salzburg, describing the city's antique splendour and reflecting on how his music was affected by the place in which he spent much of his short life. Salzburg is only the first stop in the series, that continues to travel through much of Europe: the fjords of Norway with the music of Grieg; Finland's primeval forests and Sibelius; the Venice of Vivaldi; Puccini's villa on the Torre del Lago in Tuscany; the travels of J.S. Bach through eastern Germany; Beethoven's birth city of Bonn; the Prague of Smetana and Dvooak; Tchaikovsky's St Petersburg and much more. (From Australia, in English) (Part 1)
