    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.

    DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The musical tour starts in Zürich and moves to the hill-top village of Regensberg.

    Switzerland Die Schweiz, La Suisse, Svizzera, Sviara, Mountains, Lakes, Waterfalls - Travel Video.
    DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The places visited range from the icy slopes of the Jungfraujoch, approached by the highest railway in Europe, to the tranquility of Lake Thun, the imposing waterfalls of Trümmelbach and the distinctive French, German, Italian and Romansch regions of the country. The Music The music for this tour of Switzerland is by Franz Schubert, a composer who spent his life largely in his native Vienna. 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.
    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 galleries have remarkable collections of the works of the Vela family, Lorenzo, Vincenzo and his son Spartaco. 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.

    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.

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!
