Vienna: Music for Maximilian



2012/13


Between 1493 and 1519, the Viennese Imperial Court of Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor, amassed the largest musical establishment in Europe. Maximilian had a chapel choir filled with famous singer-composers, military bands, an array of chamber instruments, and virtuoso organists. Enjoy lovely, lively, and lusty songs; charming instrumental pieces; and monumental sacred pieces proclaiming the glory of the Habsburg Emperor to the world.
