Travel with the music director of the Yale Symphony Orchestra to sites in Austria and the Czech Republic that were significant to the life of this musical genius.

Begin with two days in charming Salzburg, Mozart's birthplace. Explore the Old Town on a walking tour and visit the Mozart Museum, in the family's former home. Tour Schloss Herrenchiemsee, the largest of King Ludwig II's palaces, on an afternoon excursion to nearby Bavaria. During three days in Vienna, watch top-notch musicians at the Vienna Festival; see Schönbrunn Palace, where Mozart first performed for Empress Maria Theresa; and enjoy a before-hours curatorial tour of the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Go backstage at the Musikverein, home to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and attend a special reception and musical salon at the home of one of Vienna's leading pianists. Journey by rail to Prague for a four-day stay in the delightful Czech capital. Take a walking tour of its iconic sights, including the Jewish Quarter and Old Town, and attend a private recital at the Estates Theater, where Mozart conducted the premiere of Don Giovanni. Visit Villa Bertramka, where Mozart was a frequent guest, for a glass of wine and a concert of his arias.
