Product Description

The PlacesThe 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 MusicThe 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.

Very disappointing video choices March 12 2010
By DesignerMan - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I bought this Naxos DVD musical traveloque of Switzerland, hoping it would be better than the Naxos one I bought of France, with music of Faure. This one is worse. Granted, the Schubert music is great, and there are some nice vistas of mountains and streams, but with all the breath-taking scenery available in Switzerland, why the long study of railroad tracks, tunnels, cows, clouds, sprinklers, roads and a cat?! PLEASE - give me those gorgeous valleys and lakes. If only Rick Steves had provided the video instead of Mom and Pop tourist. And then when we see images of alp horns, cow bells and children singing, we hear only Schubert. Better to buy a good travel of Swizterland, and put on a CD of music as you watch.
