For many centuries, Ochsenhausen Abbey ( Reichskloster Ochsenhausen), first mentioned in 1093, was a self -governing prince-abbey within the Holy Roman Empire ruled by a prince-abbot.

In 1803, in the course of the German mediatization, the abbey was secularized and erected into a secular principality that was then granted to Count Franz Georg Karl von Metternich in compensation for the loss of his immediate fiefs on the left bank of the Rhine after the whole area was annexed by revolutionary France. In 1806, the short-lived principality was annexed to the Kingdom of Wrttemberg, which in 1871 became part of the German Empire.

The abbey still dominates the town from a hill. Ochsenhausen is called a “Baroque Kingdom of Heaven” (“Himmelreich des Barock”) because of the monastic architecture.

For over 30 years now, Hans-Peter and Volker Stenzl have been setting a benchmark for pianistic brilliance, musical intelligence and sensitivity as well as nuanced illumination of complex four-hand and two-piano scores.

Studies in Stuttgart, Frankfurt and London and eleven competition prizes (1986 ARD, 1989 Dranoff) were followed by an extensive international career and collaboration with world-famous conductors, such as Gustavo Dudamel and Helmuth Rilling.

The Stenzls are also deeply devoted and highly sought-after pedagogues. They are the holders of the first international chair of piano duo studies (at the hmt Rostock/Germany) and, in addition, teach in Stuttgart (Hans-Peter) and Trossingen (Volker). In 1996 they were appointed Associates of the Royal Academy of Music London. New York Time:”Brilliant and Lucid,rich in nuance and power.”

【Exclusive Music Tour Features Three: Explore the virtuosity and spirit of craftsman of the world’s top piano – Bösendorfer piano】  In 1890, Vienna decided to name a very long history street as ” Bösendorfer street”. “Bösendorfer street, number 12” is where the Vienna Golden Hall located. As the world’s best piano, it takes 70 weeks to do the manufacturing work. During the music journey, we will get the chance to enter the Bösendorfer Factory in Vienna to explore the craftsman spirit behind the piano, to feel the beautiful “Vienna” tone, to experience the unique passion from Liszt.

Bösendorfer, one of the oldest piano manufacturers, was established in 1828 by It has a history of producing highly respected instruments; in 1830, it was granted the status of the official piano maker to the Emperor of Austria. Ignaz’s son Ludwig Bösendorfer assumed control in 1859, operating from new premises from 1860. Between 1872 and its closure in 1913, the associated Bösendorfer was one of the premier concert halls of Vienna.

In 1909, Carl Hutterstrasser purchased the company and was succeeded by his sons Alexander and Wolfgang in 1931. Bösendorfer pioneered the extension of the typical 88-key keyboard, creating the Imperial Grand (Model 290), which has 97 keys (eight octaves). Ferruccio Busoni initially ordered this innovation in 1909 as part of a custom piano as he wanted to transcribe an organ piece that extended to the C below the standard keyboard.

【Exclusive Music Tour Features Four: Two piano concerts in Germany and Austria, receiving applause from German audiences】

The house is located on Domgasse. It was built in the 17th century, originally with two stories, and redeveloped in 1716. Mozart rented rooms here from 1784. His apartment on the first floor was positively grand, with four large rooms, two small ones and a kitchen. His whole life long, he attached great importance to outward appearances, so smart clothes and buckled shoes were a must for him.

Wolfgang Amadeus probably spent the happiest years of his life here. At all events, he lived here for longer than in any other apartment. Particularly during this period, Mozart was a celebrated composer, had an illustrious circle of friends, and was asked to give countless concerts at the houses of the nobility.And it was here at Domgasse that he also penned his best compositions, including what is perhaps his most popular opera The Marriage of Figaro.

Occupying 1,000 square meters on six levels, the Mozarthaus was opened on January 27, 2006 – the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth.Visitors are immersed in the vibrant world of Mozart, experiencing his bounteous genius and creativity, his family, and his friends and foes in Vienna of the late Baroque. Become acquainted with Mozart’s enigmatic personality – an experience par excellence

【Exclusive Music Tour Features Five: Listen to the New Year Series Concert in the Vienna Golden Hall】

The Wiener Musikverein ( Viennese Music Association), commonly shortened to Musikverein, is a concert hall in the Innere Stadt borough of Vienna, Austria. It is the home of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra.

The “Great Hall” (Großer Saal), due to its highly regarded acoustics, is considered one of the finest concert halls in the world, along with Berlin’s Konzerthaus, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and Boston’s Symphony Hall. With the exception of Boston Symphony Hall, none of these halls were built in the modern era with the application of architectural acoustics, and all share a long, tall, and narrow shoe box shape.

The building is located on Dumbastraße/Bösendorferstraße behind the Hotel Imperial near the Ringstraße boulevard and the Wien River, between Bösendorferstraße and Karlsplatz. It was erected as the new concert hall run by the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, on a piece of land provided by Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria in 1863.

The plans were designed by Danish architect Theophil Hansen in the Neoclassical style of an ancient Greek temple, including a concert hall and a smaller chamber music hall. The building was inaugurated on 6 January 1870. A major donor was Nikolaus Dumba, industrialist and liberal politician of Greek descent, whose name The Great Hall’s lively acoustics are primarily based on Hansen’s intuition, as he could not rely on any studies on architectural acoustics. The room’s rectangular shape and proportions, its boxes and sculptures allow early and numerous sound reflections.
