Switzerland - Travel Video.
Switzerland - Travel Video.DVD. Client Denn Digital Camera. 80 Minutes. If one were to try and capture Switzerland, in one word, it would surely be the word diversity. It is rare to find a country encompassing such scope and variety in its national life and natural features. Switzerland is dominated by the central part of the Alps;two major rivers, the Rhine and the Rhone, and numerous lakes. Areas are identified with cultural heritage; German to the north and east, French in the southwest, Italian in the southeast and a small enclave of Romansch in the east. Churches, cathedrals, castles and old town centers reflect the diversity. Each region takes pride in their local music but alphorns and yodelers are recognized as symbolic Swiss music. We will visit the rivers, mountains and several lakes. See the cultural changes from Geneva to Schaffhausen to Sargans, Hear alphorns and yodelers at Ballenberg. Foods are representative of the varied cultures and are always good. Swiss wines are legendary. The transportation system may be the best and most spectacular in the world. By train, cog wheel, cable car, gondola, post bus, tram, ship and car - through tunnels, over mountains and across rivers and lakes, and always on time - and we'll be there!

Rick Steves' Austria and the Alps - Travel Video.
Rick Steves' Austria and the Alps - Travel Video.7 Shows. DVD. Five Shows: 2? hours, closed captioned, NTSC format, all region compatible. Here's where we'll take you... Vienna -- In Europe's classiest capital we'll tiptoe through the palace of Maria Theresa and be dazzled by the Hapsburg crown jewels. Then we'll picnic on the Danube, nibble strudel in an old world cafe, blush at slinky Art Nouveau, and waltz to the three-four beat of Johann Strauss. Salzburg and Surroundings -- The birthplace of Mozart -- and everyone's Sound of Music fantasies -- Salzburg is a baroque jewel of a town. It's also the springboard for lots of alpine fun -- from thrilling summer bobsledding, to idyllic boat rides in the Salzkammergut lake district, to exploring the delightful romantic town of Hallstatt. Alps of Austria and Italy -- From high on the Zugspitze at the Germany and Austria border, Rick makes his way down to popular Innsbruck, the historic provincial capitol of the Hapsburgs. We explore a medieval museum, get a resident's tips on cuisine -- especially dumplings -- and slap dance the night away in a nearby Tyrolean village. By way of historic Brenner Pass, we turn to feudal Italy at Reifenstein Castle. Then we're out-of-doors, as we zoom up rock cliffs in a cable car and hike through Alpine meadows in the Italian Dolomites. Alps of France and Switzerland -- Rick makes a home base out of Chamonix, the original French Alpine resort, ever popular with international skiing and party crowds. Who says there's no easy way to conquer Mount Blanc? Just hop a gondola and you'll soar past the great peak, over glaciers and into Italy. We train over to Appenzell, Switzerland on the Glacier Express Railway and find Swiss traditions thriving in yodel-happy, cowbell country. The Best of the Alps: Switzerland's Jungfrau Region -- If Heidi is alive, she's in this sky-high corner of the Swiss Alps, with cowbells ringing on breathtaking ridges. After settling into a traditional village where locals scythe hay by hand, we hike and bike. We blast an alphorn, get sprayed by waterfalls raging deep inside a mountain, and munch muesli for breakfast at 10,000 feet. For a finale, we ride Europe's highest lift up the mighty Jungfrau for hot cocoa and oh-wow views.

Switzerland, Italy, Germany, 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.

His famous Unfinished Symphony, the two movements of which were written in 1822, were not performed until 37 years after Schubert's death, when the manuscripts were discovered at the home of Schubert's friend Anselm Hüttenbrenner. The music continues with Schubert's Fifth Symphony, written in the space of a few weeks in 1816, when the composer was nineteen.

Switzerland A Musical Tour of the Graubunden - Travel Video.
Switzerland A Musical Tour of the Graubunden - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The canton of the Graubünden, the Grey Leagues, covers the largest territory of all Swiss cantons, while remaining the most sparsely populated. Geographically it borders the Southern Tyrol, Austria and Liechtenstein, and linguistically has a population in part Romansch-speaking, while other languages used include German, Italian and, to a much lesser extent, French. The canton has traditional importance as a crossing-point between south and north in Europe. The Music Music for the tour is taken from four Concerti grossi by Handel. Born in Halle in 1685, Handel had his first musical employment there and then in Hamburg, before moving in 1706 to Italy, where he remain until 1710, when he was appointed Kapellmeister to the Elector of Hanover. He travelled almost at once to London, where he had been engaged to compose an Italian opera, and from 1712 until his death in 1759 settled in England, winning fame first as a composer of Italian opera and then as the creator of English oratorio.

Switzerland Museo Vela at Ligornetto - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The Museo Vela is at Ligornetto in the Swiss-Italian canton of Ticino.

The principal part of the collection includes works in gesso of Vincenzo (1821–1891), plaster-cast figures later reworked in stone. The Museo Vela houses the largest such exhibition in the world. The Music Music for the visit is by Chopin, with his piano Preludes, written principally during the winter of 1838–39 that he spent in Mallorca with his mistress, the writer George Sand. The stay there brought many difficulties, not least the early signs of illness that was to bring about Chopin's death ten years later. Other music included is Chopin's Variations brillantes.

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.
