The enduring image of Vienna as “The City of Music” owes much to the mix of composers and performers active there in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. This course focuses on the period between Beethoven’s arrival in the early 1790s and Schubert’s death in the late 1820s. The cultural geography of Vienna in these decades is complex and fascinating: an environment rich in artistic achievement, but also marred by war and political repression. Tracking the city’s musical and political history in these years reveals the extent to which Beethoven and Schubert, who moved in different social circles, in many ways lived in two different Viennas. We will also explore how specific works of theirs reflect these broader social differences.
