Vienna in Waltz Time

Schubert was only 16 when he composed his Symphony no. 1, while completing his musical studies. Still influenced by Mozart and Haydn, his personal style emerges in the poetic Andante movement. Meanwhile in Vienna, queen city of the waltz, balls and soirées glistened to the sound of waltzes by Lanner or Johann Strauss the Younger.
