Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is no amateur film. It is professionally shot with some imaginative scenes and colouring. It features many of the tourist sights of Vienna but some streetlife too. We visit Schonbrunn, including the gardens and palm house. We have a ride on the Riesenrad, and on a fiacre. It's a pleasure to see St Stephen's Cathedral without any scaffolding and to visit the interiors of Prince Eugen's inner city palace (not the Belvedere), the Opera House, and the architectural confection that is now the Army Museum.

And we view things that are often overlooked, such as many of the city's courtyards, its statuary, and the frieze above the Burgtheater. There are some interior shots, including some dazzling contents of the Schatzkammer in the Hofburg. What's missing include much of the work of Otto Wagner, the Secession, and no shots of the Danube.

The notes that come with the DVD comment on both the visual aspects and the music. But the problem with this disc for me is the latter: Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, more Beethoven, more Mozart, even more Mozart, more Schubert, yet more Mozart, even more Schubert, yet more Beethoven, yet more Schubert, and finally ... some Mozart. No Haydn, no Brahms, no Bruckner, no Mahler, none of the Second Viennese School, not even any Strauss!

Regardless of the choice of composers, the choice of music itself only sometimes works: the storm sequence from Beethoven's `Pastorale' works well when looking at some of the city's buildings and monuments, as does the andante from his fourth piano concerto on a visit to the cemetery. And Schubert's bucolic scherzo from his `Trout' quintet fits well with the scenes of Baden and Grinzing.

If you like the music of Vienna and want to see some video of the main parts of the city, this is for you. A good and simple overview of the essential bits to see (all filmed in bright sunshine of course), but a nice introduction to the pleasures of the home of opera, the Danube, and Strauss.

Good for the music, terrible for the tour 16 Sept. 2005
By D. Barboza - Published on
Format: DVD
If you would like to hear some good music while seing some beautiful images from a beautiful city, this DVD is less than good, the places are shown in a too slow speed, which makes the video boring.

About Vienna on this video, this DVD does not have any subtitle at all to inform you what is the place you are seing. You see beautiful scenes, but don't know whereabouts in the city is the place you are seing. Disapointing. I was looking forward to buy the whole colection (Paris, London, Prague, Rome...), but after this one, I might stop here. Moreover, there are important places in Vienna missing in this DVD. Vienna, city of Strauss' great Blue Danube Waltz, being Danube itself a symbol of Vienna... hold on!, the Danube river is not in this DVD at all! Neither is the Belvedere Palace and Gardens and many other places.

If only the music matters, ok. If you would like to see Vienna in a video, forget about this DVD.

Beautiful audio-visual treat! 6 Feb. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Beautifully filmed and arranged! They show some of the best known sights in Vienna and some unusual ones as well. The soprano singing an aria from the Magic Flute is exceptional (couldn't find her name, though). Note that this is not a documentary - it is a musical journey. If you like listening to music and would like some great visual stimulation as well while you do, this is for you. The images are lovely and fit the music well. If you know the old Naxos series most of those were very good as well but you didn't know what you were seeing unless you stopped the disk and went to the menu. They fixed it in this series by inserting a simple slide with a little information at the beginning of each section. As this is not a documentary per say, no more than that is needed, in my opinion -just enough to give some info without stopping the flow of music. No talking! Great!

I enjoy this DVD 9 April 2010
By H. Wei - Published on
Format: DVD
I like this DVD. Exactly what I like -- watching all the beatiful scenes, classical architecture, people, and culture, while listening to classical music. Hope I could tour Vienna in near future. This is one the best DVDs in the series of "A Musical Journey". If it makes the DVD even better, I would prefer some of other Bethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Strauss music.
Disappointing 20 Oct. 2013
By Carol Helfer - Published on
The music was acceptable, though the audio quality was less than perfect. And it would have been helpful to have information on the screen about the title/composer/artist of the piece being performed. Although there were some lovely clips on video, a lot of it was generic, i.e. it could have come from anyplace. Plus too much repetition on the video. Altogether a half-hearted effort.
