Join Thomas Søndergård and guests for a round-table discussion with recordings and live music as they uncover the fascinating context in which the Romantic movement of Beethoven and Goethe reached its pinnacle and gave birth to the modern. In Focus: The Vienna Connection launches our journey through the golden age of this vibrant city with a virtual gallery of works by Gustav Klimt; a tour through the architecture and designs of Otto Wagner; an exploration of the great Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his exhibitions in Vienna; and even an encounter with Sigmund Freud!
