Tuesday 8/8/06 (Vienna) part 2

In the evening we all went to a concert of Mozart and Strauss music performed by the Wiener Rezident Orchestra, in the Auesburg Palace, where Mozart debuted many of his works for the Austrian royalty. It was a small chamber group, all very talented and made for a wonderful authentic Viennese experience. Robin and I waltzed when we returned to the boat. The return included some welcome news – the rain had stopped, and we would be setting sail in the night.

A linguistic note – just as a “Frankfurter” is a resident of Frankfurt, a “Wiener” is a resident of Wien – the true German spelling of “Vienna”.
