Austria's Music History

It is commonly said that travel broadens the mind. This is especially true of musicians. The works of Mozart, Haydn, Liszt and Mahler would be unimaginable if their composers had not spent much of their lives travelling. In the greatest cities of Europe they not only captivated audiences with their music; they also found inspiration for many pieces.
