The Places

The places visited range from the icy slopes of the Jungfraujoch, approached by the highest railway in Europe, to the tranquility of Lake Thun, the imposing waterfalls of Trümmelbach and the distinctive French, German, Italian and Romansch regions of the country.

The Music

The music for this tour of Switzerland is by Franz Schubert, a composer who spent his life largely in his native Vienna. His famous Unfinished Symphony, the two movements of which were written in 1822, were not performed until 37 years after Schubert's death, when the manuscripts were discovered at the home of Schubert's friend Anselm Hüttenbrenner. The music continues with Schubert's Fifth Symphony, written in the space of a few weeks in 1816, when the composer was nineteen.
