Rick Steves' Germany and Scandinavia 2000-2007 - Travel Video.
Rick Steves' Germany and Scandinavia 2000-2007 - Travel Video.DVD. Seven Shows: 3? hours, closed captioned, NTSC format, all region compatible. Munich and the Foothills of the Alps -- In Munich, where locals specialize in good living, we visit boisterous markets and go-for-Baroque palaces...while office workers surf in the Isar River. Heading into the foothills of the Alps, we tour the fairy-tale castles of "Mad" King Ludwig and climb to the highest point in Germany, the Zugspitz. Then we cross into the Tirol to conquer a desolate ruined castle. Germany's Romantic Rhine and Rothenburg -- Cruising the Rhine River, we dodge riverboat traffic and the legendary Lorelei. After climbing castles and descending into dungeons, we relax with Rhine wine. We tour Burg Eltz, a lived-in castle where the noble lady still puts out fresh flowers. Then we enter the walled town of Rothenburg for Germany's best wood carving, a vivid dose of medieval punishment, and a tour with the night watchman of the town's lamp-lit ramparts. Germany's Black Forest and Cologne -- Rick teams up with his wife and kids to appreciate the Gothic artistry of Cologne's cathedral. Then it's time to enjoy the good life, dipping into a classy mineral spa, trying our luck at a fancy casino, devouring chocolate-cherry cake, and exploring Germany's most romantic forest. Berlin: Resilient, Reunited and Reborn -- Berlin is back, resuming its place as a great Germanyan capital. We climb the Reichstag's new glass dome, sway at a modern-day cabaret, and pop a few chocolates in the now thriving eastern sector. Along with Germany's finest art, complicated Berlin also has hidden remnants of its fascist and communist past. In a city that's rebounding and rebuilding, we crane our necks at Potsdamer Platz, Germany's newest Times Square. Copenhagen and Aero -- A highlight of Scandinavia, Denmark's Copenhagen welcomes visitors with remnants of Viking days, cosmopolitan flair and a high standard of living. We join the locals -- lunching, biking and then boating through old Copenhagen. Our city tour ends in the world famous carnival, Tivoli Gardens Amusement Park. For a glimpse of 17th century Denmark, we board a train, then ferry to Aero Island where a bike ride among thatched cottages, "snooping mirrors," and cobbled alleys reminds us of the world of Hans Christian Andersen. Oslo, Bergen, and the Fjords -- We find that Norway's seafaring past lives on in Oslo as we boat across the harbor and explore remnants of ocean adventure from Viking Eric the Red to Thor Heyerdahl of Kon Tiki fame. The Nazi Resistance Museum chronicles Norway's brave stance in World War II and a mammoth ski jump beckons the super-skilled. We ride the scenic rails over Norway's mountainous spine and cruise a fjord as part of the "Norway in a Nutshell" route. Finally, in Bergen we stroll the Hanseatic quarter, discovering links to the city's past. Stockholm and Helsinki -- We check out sleek Stockholm as an opener to a tour that winds up in Helsinki, Finland. In Sweden's capitol, we browse in the old town, see an opera at the baroque Queen's Theater, get close to an unlucky 17th century warship and sample earlier centuries of Swedish life in a lively open-air museum. Then we board a ship for a scenic overnight cruise through the Baltic Archipelago to explore 19th century sights in modern Helsinki, Finland.

Bavaria - Travel Video.
Bavaria - Travel Video.DVD. Cities of the World. 60 Minutes. Bavaria is the largest German territory. It is a land dotted with little towns and villages. Wooden shells, high red tiled roofs with many skylights, old signboards, town walls, ancient churches, domes and steeples, narrow streets and riverbanks, huge green areas and many flowers take us to a wonderfully calm and merry world. Beside the well known Octoberfest holder Munich and the medieval older towns Nuremberg, Regensburg and Augsburg, there are castles like the romantic Neuschwanstein that are waiting for the traveller. There are glittering lakes in the green pinewood like the K?nigssee and the Chiemsee, and mountaintops like the snow-capped Zugspitze. Though Bavaria is only one territory within the German territories, it is clear it is quite different from the others. It is richer, friendlier and its atmosphere is more delightful.

Germany Bavarian Lakes and Schloss Herrencheimsee - Travel Video.
Germany Bavarian Lakes and Schloss Herrencheimsee - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places Bavaria has a place of its own in Germany, both geographically and culturally. The tour stars with the Alpine lake known as Königssee and explores the surrounding landscape, including the Berchtesgaden National Park and the gardens of Ludwig II's answer to Versailles, his grandiose Schloss Herrenchiemsee. The tour ends with the Chiemsee, its islands and its tranquil waters. The Music The music for the tour is by Johannes Brahms and his colleague and collaborator, the violinist Joseph Joachim. Brahms' Second Symphony, which accompanies the earlier parts of the tour, was described by some contemporaries as Brahms' Pastoral Symphony and provides, in its generally cheerful serenity, an apt accompaniment to views of the Bavarian countryside. Joachim's Overture In memoriam Heinrich von Kleist, written probably in the same year as Brahms' symphony, 1877, commemorates the centenary of the birth of the great German writer.

Germany A Musical Tour of Bach's Homeland - Travel Video.
Germany A Musical Tour of Bach's Homeland - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places This tour of Germany and, in particular, Thuringia, takes us to places associated with Johann Sebastian Bach, to his birth-place, Eisenach, to Arnstadt where he had early employment, and to Leipzig, where he spent the last 27 years of his life. We also see the historic town of Gotha with Schloss Friedenstein and its surviving baroque theatre, Erfurt, and Naumburg, with its Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul. The Music The music for this tour of Germany is taken from three keyboard concertos by Bach, originally written for harpsichord but here heard on the piano, an instrument only beginning to develop in Bach's time. Bach's keyboard concertos, many of them arrangements of earlier works for other solo instruments, were written in Leipzig, where, in 1729, Bach took over direction of the University Collegium Musicum. This ensemble of talented amateurs and professionals met on Wednesday afternoons at Gottfried Zimmermann's coffee-house or in summer on Friday evenings in his garden outside Leipzig.

Germany Majestic Marches A musical visit to Kulmbach and the Tin Solider Museum - Travel Video.
Germany Majestic Marches A musical visit to Kulmbach and the Tin Solider Museum - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The Places On a hill above the ancient town of Kulmbach stands the imposing 12th-century Hohenzollern fortress of Plassenburg. Among various collections on display is the remarkable Tin Soldier Museum, with various figures and dioramas that recreate battles and mirror the great castle itself, with a variety of scenes from all periods of human history. The Music The Music The March has an inevitable part to play in human history. Marco Polo remarked on the use of music by the armies of China to terrify the enemy before a battle. Military music, however, has a more precise purpose, whatever alarm it may strike into the hearts of those who hear it. Drums and trumpets may serve as useful signals, to advance or retreat, to eat or to sleep. The same instruments and their near relations may serve to keep an army moving together, and may serve to inspire feelings of bravery and patriotism. At the same time a march can provide a suitable accompaniment to an occasion of solemnity, a wedding, a funeral or a state ceremony. The music chosen for this tour offers a series of Marches by different composers, culminating in Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.

Germany, Italy A Musical Visit to Bavarian Palaces and Italy's Southern Tyrol - Travel Video.
Germany, Italy A Musical Visit to Bavarian Palaces and Italy's Southern Tyrol - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places Ludwig II of Bavaria followed family precedent in undertaking an extravagant building programme during his relatively short reign from 1864 to 1886. The castles constructed on his orders included the romantic Neuschwanstein and the magnificent Schloss Linderhof, with its elaborate formal gardens, grottoes and fountains. The tour ends with a brief glimpse of the mountainous Southern Tyrol in winter snow. The Music Richard Wagner’s innovative and immensely influential music dramas were largely based on older German legend, notably on the Nibelungenlied, the basis of his tetralogy The Ring. Ludwig II was fascinated by Wagner and by his operas, on subjects that had long been dear to him. These include the opera Lohengrin, which Ludwig first saw in 1861, the beginning of the preoccupation with Wagner, and the earlier opera Tannhäuser. The music chosen also includes an overture by Heinrich Marschner to an opera based on the old Bohemian legend of Hans Heiling, son of an Earth Spirit.

Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France Night Music Vol. 1 - Travel Video.
Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France Night Music Vol. 1 - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The Places Most of the places visited reflect a spirit of calm and tranquility, although the glimpse of Venice dwells briefly on carnival revellers. Other scenes range from the Bavarian Chiemsee and the Swiss Engadin to the marshy tracts of the Camargue in the South of France, with its wild horses. The Music The music matches the reflective mood of the scenes shown. Included are movements from Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik and Symphony No. 40, and from Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, with Pachelbel’s ingenious Canon. From Tchaikovsky comes a Mélodie, a composition that formed part of a thank-you letter to his hostess and patron, whom he was never to meet face to face, and from Debussy the popular Clair de lune. The recording ends with Faure’s Sicilienne, familiar in so many forms and transcriptions.

Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Italy Thurgau, Steckborn, Bodensee, Thine Falls, Styria, Hochosterwitz Castle, Weikersheim Castle, Assling Nature Park, Dolomi- Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The Places The journey starts in Switzerland, in the canton of Thurgau, leading from Steckborn and the Bodensee to the Rhine Falls. From Syria, in Austria, comes Hochosterwitz Castle and from Bavaria Weikersheim Castle, the latter intercut with wild life from the Austrian Assling Nature Park. The tour ends amid the strangely shaped mountains of the Dolomites in Southern Tyrol, a region divided between Austria and Italy. The Music The Music In a remarkable way Mahler, in his symphonies and songs, has seemed to reflect the twentieth century in all its bewildering variety and has now won an established place in concert repertoire. Distinguished as a conductor, his fame as a composer has grown over the years since his death. The music included here is Mahler’s Symphony No 1, nicknamed Titan, not for its massive power, but after the book by Jean Paul, a strong influence over earlier romantics and over Mahler at this stage in his career. The symphony breathes the spirit of the Austrian countryside, reflected in Mahler’s songs.
