Castles and Towns in Bohemia and Moravia
Music by Mozart
The Places - The visit to the Czech Republic starts with Hluboká Castle, a massive building that for over
three hundred years belonged to the Schwarzenberg family. The present building is modelled in part on
England’s Windsor Castle. Other sites visited include Konopište Castle, the picturesque town of Telc, and
The Music - Music for the visit is by Mozart and consists of his four Horn Concertos, written during the last
decade of his life, when he was in Vienna. They were intended for his old Salzburg friend Ignaz Leutgeb, who had also settled in Vienna, prudently married there, and, in tandem with his musical activities, had become the owner of a small cheese-shop. The concertos, one of them unfinished at the time of Mozart’s death, represent his work at its height.
